As a printmaker the three techniques I am currently working with are Stone Lithography, Mokuhanga and Frottage. In addition to working with these various mediums is my desire to develop images of environmental vignettes on both a micro and macro scale. Some of the work springs from inspiration last year when, as an Artist In Residence at Lake Kawaguchiko which is at the foot of Mt.Fuji Japan
I was submerged in a totally different place compared to Australia.This environment deepened my ongoing fascination with the endless novel and dramatic permutations of sky, mist and clouds.
