About me:

Printmaking has been my main practice although I have also explored and exhibited experimental moving image and installation. It's uncertainty, everyday encounter with errors, fortunate surprise and technical challenge interact with my thought process. I am also a freelance printmaking tutor working mainly for Leicester Print Workshop.


My recent work is inspired by (empty) space, place and temporality, and my interest in moving image. It has been heavily photographic based, such as photo-etching, CMYK screen printing and photo-plate lithography. I am now motivated to work in more direct way, namely drawing based printmaking such as mono-print etc. My main interest is testing materials and mark-making, colours, and textures that they create and I intend to take this AA2A opportunity to experiment with this and make a new body of work. Such a project requires hours of practice in the print room, and the AA2A scheme will give me the chance and freedom to explore my idea.

It would also be beneficial for me to interact with motivated students, and I also hope my presence will benefit them. It would also be hugely beneficial to me to meet with other artists. I hope to expand and improve my portfolio and career as an artist as a result of this experience.
