Stories Fantastic and Odd.
I work with copper plate etching to produce intaglio prints which I then hand colour with water colours. When I was a child, I found great happiness in magical and fantastical story books with beautiful illustrated pictures. Things read to us by grandmothers from raggedy books left over from their own childhood which were often older, darker and more intense, slightly strange and definitely quirky. I have used these stories as my inspiration for this exhibition and drawing from nature underpin my work with colour.
