Project summary:

An experienced photographer and digital fine art printmaker, I now want to combine different printmaking techniques to develop multi-layered experimental work to show the remarkable textures shapes and forms of leaves, seeds, pods, nuts and fruits and explore how the prints themselves can provide more texture, shape and relief by including natural plant materials, encaustic medium and hand-made papers from natural plant fibres.

Experimenting with alternative hanging and display methods would also be an integral part of developing this project, exploring ideas that extend ‘beyond the frame’.
