This week I have been experimenting with Monoprints. A Monoprint is a form of printmaking where the print is made only once, unlike most printmaking where a limited edition of each image is made.  I have painted directly on to the plate using my drawings as inspiration,  The first is from a drawing made of Ballet Black‘s performance at the BarbicanStoryville

I am beginning a new series of etchings inspired by lines of poetry. The first in the series is inspired by Sylvia Plath‘s Poppies In July:

“You flicker. I cannot touch you.

I put my hands among the flames. Nothing burns”
