Not a natural writer however I am looking for a way of recording my printmaking journey, so please bare with. In June this year I graduated from Plymouth college of art. I was on the BA Painting, Drawing and printmaking programme.
I began the course with the aim to become a printmaker and after a wobbly start, the printmaker in me rose to the surface.
A breakthrough in my practice happened when I found a bit of driftwood whilst out walking. Being free from the need to find an image to print allowed me to 'play' with print.
In my degree show, Cornucopia, I showed prints and plate, which was a 8x4 piece of plywood I found on Tregantle Beach. I was honoured to be awarded a residency at The Clay Factory, Ivybridge at the show and will be there until March 2019.
Since June we have had three Degree Show Pluses, Ivybridge, Bristol and London. And I was selected to show at the Blue Dot Generation, Arts for Education event at the House of Vans, Waterloo.
In October I started a MA in Printmaking at Plymouth again. And it is this journey that I hope to document in this blog..if I can keep it up!
Looking forward to sharing my experiments, successful and not so.
