I travelled to the Customs house in august to arrange taking my work to be displayed in the Green Room and last sunday took the ferry from Tynemouth to take a look at how they looked. Work from 4 decades ago to photoetch prints made recently using a watercolour image of Leazes Park Allotments from 4 decades ago. So still working on ideas that I find intriguing. I always wanted to make prints that I could control – the ink colour and wash effect – not just digital reproductions – truly handmade and I’ve found the printmaking process is exactly what I hoped it would be. A constant learning process to find out all the ways to exploit the very special and challenging characteristics.
Going back on the ferry I was intrigued by the wall of seaweed.
