My creative practice is concerned with exploring links between life drawing and collagraph print making. I find that most collograph print makers create landscapes or abstract compositions, I am more interested in creating figurative work, or abstracted figures. 

Here are some of the collagraph prints I created in autumn 2020 they are are mostly based on older life drawings due to covid restrictions meaning that life drawing was ‘on hold'. I was exploring plate making techniques and different ways of developing abstraction within my work.
