From there I create a plate or plates and think on the idea and how they relate to one another;
Then it is time to run the background plate and decide on a colour
Then run the ink and intaglio over the top.
Then work on colour ideas and expression for meaning and work on all the edition at same time making them as close as possible to each other.
Then you photograph them - do your artist statement and parcel them to go into the real world .
What a journey before they ever get to a new destination who lnows where they will end up.
It is a joy, a passion and exciting to create works and send them out into the world .
