I am an artist and printmaker. My work tackles the themes of journeys through the landscape of urban and rural areas of North-West Britain, and the documentation of the mundane aspects of life that we are numb too, captured in the process of photographing and documenting the everyday life and renewing it through the various methods of printmaking.
We have started to become numb to or disinterested in the everyday landscape. through a series of unplanned adventures, my work explored and depicts the landscape through my personal perspective, recording history and documenting a narrative. I attempt to present the photographic images in a renewed form through print. the process transforms these scenes into something interesting.
The care and attention that is taken into the making of this work is ever present through this personal touch. i chose the print process to highlight how our daily lives, often seen as mundane, can still be an exacting subject to represent.
