I am currently the tutor for Howardian's Printmaking classes, run as part of their Adult Education programme at Cardiff Print Workshop. Classes run Mondays 10-12 and we cover most aspects of printmaking, aside from screenprinting. Classes are limited to 10 and are suitable for all levels.
I also hold print-based and mixed media workshops in schools and for groups of adults. I have facilitated projects for the Arts Council of Wales, Women's Arts Association, and for various museums here and in America where I taught art for 6 years.
In my own work I am a mixed media printmaker, using a combination of processes; whichever best suits the idea or aesthetic I am hoping to achieve. My work explores aspects of memory, and I am currently drawing inspiration from my matrilineal heritage using papermaking combined with print. This includes embedded objects, text, stitch, staining and wax, allowing aspects of the image to be revealed in subtle ways. This project was funded by the Arts Council of Wales. The experiments with print and paper surfaces led to an exploration of ways in which surfaces could be layered and elements revealed and obscured in a series of small box framed pieces entitled 'Keepsakes'.
The 'Keepsakes' boxes are an ongoing series of print assemblages with objects and obscured glass so that only part of the image can be seen, reflecting the way in which memories exist and how objects can trigger memory.
