When it comes to printmaking, I enjoy the challenges of the discipline and the emphasis on markmaking, line and tone. The complexity of the technical nature of printmaking is alluring as there is always something new to learn. Most recently I have begun etching using a copper suphate & sodium (salt) mix as it is more environmentally friendly. I use oil based inks for their velvety richness and I clean up with a 'green' spray cleaner. I am going to experiment with 'kitchen lithography' using harmless products later in the year and will let you know how it goes!
