My work aims to evoke an intuitive experience and reflects on the human relationship with nature.
I draw ideas from observation and experience. Sometimes simple things as light reflections on waves, an intricate texture on a stone or the outcome of a print experiment with found and collected natural and other objects can trigger a whole new series of ideas and works.
Series of work on paper. Most prints are created by layering different blocks and methods of printmaking. All prints have a layer of nature printing. For this method collected natural materials are used to create a plate. This plate is then inked and printed on paper using an etching press. All works are printed as a unique work or in a small edition of 4 to 8 pieces.
