I have a practice based in printmaking. Combining traditional processes such as etching and screen-printing with found materials, textiles and steel to consider the ways in which printed matter is encountered, utilising manoeuvres that have touch and contact embedded within their surfaces.

 

Much of my work reflects on the ways in which we share, find, support and hold onto alternative forms of knowledge through printed matter. Influenced by histories of feminist printmaking collectives, I consider printing practices as a form of radical social practice. 

 

I have presented print-led research in national and international conferences. In 2022 launched ‘Gathering Press’ a mobile screen-printing project focusing on the collective spaces of printmaking, exploring what might happen when the ‘process of making’ meets the ‘process of living’.
