Original Prints

Drawing, with the intention of making an edition of original prints is very different from the immediacy of a one-off drawing with, say, charcoal on paper.    For me, when making a print, the end product will usually end up being more considered and reflective.

In printmaking there are a variety of technical processes involved which invariably throw up issues and then, inevitably, force a change of direction with the print.   These unforeseen problems are usually exasperating . . . but they can be inspiring!
