Something a little different

Prints

Relief printing is my main art practice. I create my own designs which are primarily inspired by african tribal art and asian art. When designing I dont think about how a piece will look or have an expected outcome in mind i jus like to draw whichever shapes or lines that I feel untilΒ  pattern is formed. Any design created on a piece of lino is the first of its kind. I only pre sketch designs when they are going to be trasformed onto glass. I accept accidents in my work as part of the design process. Many mistakes have happened during my sketches but they just become part of the design.

When printing I usually create monoprints from tthe pallets that I use to mix the colours for lino printing. I find the images that are formed from the mixing of the inks intruiging.
