A Collagraph print is printed from a plate that is composed of other materials in
the manner of a collage.
The plates from which I produced these prints were made using card, papers, glues,
strings and various other things - all of which created an embossed, textured and
exciting surface when printed onto the watercolour paper.
Each of these prints is uniquely hand-coloured and hand-printed using a press.
They have a very organic fluidity and energy.
Sizes vary from 30 x 30, 30 x 60, and 40 x 50 cms.
Between 2007 and 2011 I had access to the Sunderland University print workshop and
was able to work on some ideas I had, producing, in the end, 11 series of screen
These were mono-type screen prints - all unique and individual but worked on in the
same session each time, using the same screen to work with.
They have an energy, spontaneity, excitement and fluidity about them.
