About Me

My photo
Liverpool, United Kingdom
My work has developed a lot over the 3 years I've studied for my degree. It has evolved into a body of work that deals with the human form as an environment. I've mapped and explored my own body inside and out in many ways through print, drawing and various media as a type of research to address self identity

Drawing, drawing and more drawing

This week I've been setting up my studio and working on some larger drawings and monoprints.

I began to make the monoprints in the usual process, Rolling the ink onto perspex and drawing over a photocopy to produce a one-off print. However I did hit upon an idea a few days ago...

I had an over head projector in the studio and decided to experiment with combining the monoprint process with drawing on a larger scale. When the paper is lifted off the inked up perspex, the drawing can be seen in the ink, so i placed the perspex onto the projector and, just like a piece of photocopied acetate, the image projected onto the wall. This then allowed me to make larger drawings form my own print plate, therefore producing a print and a drawing of each image i produce.

Oh and heres a shot of my little nesting palce for the next 10 months. bliss....

Welcome to my blog! :)

This page is primarily a documentation of my art work I create. I'm a BA Fine Art, Mixed Media Student currently in my final year of my degree.

My work deals with ideas of the fragility of the human condition and often consists of images of my own body. I tend to work with materials that reflect the delicacy of the human form such as stitch and fabrics. My drawing style i like to describe as a "nervous" line, which also ties in with the themes of all my work.
