I believe that art is made by people for people. That's why I focus on the handmade. That's why my prints are hand burnished, without a press.

Since the advent of corona I have been studying print making in my atelier and it has opened up a whole new world of ideas and possibilities for me. I have a BSc(Hons) in Textile Design & Design Management from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST). While studying in my final year, I focused on printed textiles, working in a textile company, separating my designs for the screen printing process by hand for my degree show.

Now, decades later, its a joy to come back to printing, this time on paper. I don't believe in making a large print run - it needs a lot of strength to print by hand. And I don't believe in making the prints identical. That's the beauty of doing it by hand. I can always try out a new ideas, making a series that is on the whole similar, but not identical. Just like no human being is identical. So that the prints retain their "humanness" and don't become machine made.
