Monoprints often form the first step in developing a series of work, leading to ideas which may then be developed in other media such as paintings or animations. The old metal etching plates which I print from hold the remains of a ‘ghost’ image which I work into which has lead to a collection of small oil paintings on metal. I like the way one process leads to another. During the process of creation incidental artwork has been produced. Art making for me always holds a playful element of surprise.
