"I wanted to create a range of prints inspired by African and Asian motifs that were reasonably priced- a perfect gift for friends and family.
The designs have a global flavor with a clean, fresh aesthetic. I looked back to my textile design background and my love of tribal textiles and jewellery, pattern and simple graphic design inspired by Nature.
I am excited to add to the series- it's a very therapeutic process and a nice contrast to my oil paintings. The print designs can work on their own and also hung in a group as a collection."
These beautiful monoprints are individually hand printed using traditional relief printing techniques. Each design is first completed on paper and then copied to the block. The block is carved away leaving the design in relief which is then inked using a bayer.
The paper is laid on top and the design is then carefully transferred onto the paper using a baren. These monochrome and multi coloured designs are printed onto 300g/m acid free Aquafine Cold Pressed NOT paper and framed in gilded mount and chalk paint frames.
