Printmaking, of all my creative mediums, has the strongest grasp on my heart, and I find the many processes enthralling, entrancing and absorbing –  with each stage undertaken with bated breath. Whether it be immersing a carefully drawn plate into a bath of acid, or seeing all the collage/cuts into a collagraph plate unified with their coat of button polish, or an exposed screen revealing itself in the washout booth, these points in time are a mix of excitement and trepidation. And with all these techniques, there is a a gap between drawing, processing and then the inking that reveals a certain spontaneity that is hard to replicate find elsewhere.
