I am a printer-maker who resides in the Severnside area, where my main focus of interest is in the edgelands of Avonmouth on the outskirts of Bristol. The process of collograph printmaking using mass produced industrial materials enables me to describe the vast spatial emptiness. Imprinting this sense of eerie post-human absence that is present in the landscape. The plates emboss the paper with a intrinsic physicality produced between the matrix (printing plate) and the print. Acknowledging how the non-human and human agencies are constantly fluctuating coalescing into my own sense of place.
