Here is my most recent efforts in lino printing. Printing for me has always been done in big studios with lots of messy inks and chemicals. Whilst I have always LOVED doing printmaking like this I now don't have the space or time to put in such efforts. Teaching takes lots of time right now so I squeeze in the arty stuff as much as possible. So, in my little studio apartment, with my boyfriend on the couch and the TV going, I plonk myself on the tiles and make baby prints with baby rollers and Japanese hand burnishers. Works a treat.
Banksias and Australian flora have started moving into my field of reference only recently. As I get older I seem to have more respect for, connection with, and desire to record my immediate surroundings. I did stuff like this in high school so maybe being a teacher now has reignited this work. Who knows.
