Recently my practice has become exclusively print based. The language of printmaking always has for me an element of being uncontrollable, meaning I never truly know what will be produced. The whole process of making a print is important as well as the outcome, but the relationship of text and image has equal importance. The image can be interpreted in various ways, but I believe that the text is needed to give the true interpretation and whether this is followed or not is a choice to be made. Throughout my practice the work constantly addresses socio-political issues currently circulating in the world, and most recently the pressures specific to women. My passion for understanding these concerns transitions into a highly emotional and factual text, subsequently provoking that emotional response in the audience. The work is to highlight the wrong but also to celebrate and remember.
