My time at WYPW has already allowed me to learn and experiment with processes which I’ve never tried but always wanted to, such as Photo-Lithography, Solar-Plate and Photo-Etching. I’ve also been fortunate to be able to delve deeper into my passion of Etching with my studio time.
The lovely team have thoroughly trained me and granted me the autonomy to take full control over my practice by mixing up my own acid solutions, applying my own aquatint, mixing my own sugar-lift solution and work with the freedom to explore the process differently. With this I found that I’m able to take more creative risks and take full authorship over my work. The most prominent development in my printmaking practice is my approach to plate making, where I’m thinking in greater depth about how illustration and mark making can translate into print. Working alongside Fleur has been great as we are able to learn together and compare our personal print preferences, which aren’t similar – however it means we share more honest opinions.
