Printmaking: Linocuts, Engraving, Monotype, Drypoint, Ink on Other, Paper.
When I started doing linocuts I found very exciting. It allowed me to discover many different combinations of colour that blends and contrasts with each other so effectively, that to me it seemed startling. I used a lino made of rubber and with a v-shaped chisel tool, I carved into the relief surface and then used a roller to cover it in block printing ink of the colour blue. I carefully placed on A3 sized paper and used either roller or presser to imprint my image to the paper, then gently pulling it off. I was inspired by Rowanne Anderson and Debbie Sutcliffe, because they share an interest with lino and portrays figures in a symbolic way, which to me seems abstract as a personal interest. I would like the viewer to feel comfort and happiness with my work.
