The Process:


Etchings - To make an etching lines are etched into a metal plate with acid. I draw the image with metal tools through an acid - resistant ground this protects the parts of the image I don't want to etch . The plate is inked and wiped leaving ink in the etched lines and the surface clean . Damp paper is laid over the plate the paper and plate are then passed through the rollers of an etching press . The pressure forces the ink onto the paper leaving behind the image.


Lino cuts - These are relief prints, in relief printing the non-printing area of the linoleum block is cut away using gouges and other tools . The area to be printed is left raised and then rolled with ink paper is laid on the block pressure is applied either with a press or by rubbing by hand . The prints are then editioned.
