I work on paper with watercolour, and I am developing a series of etchings. My work begins with looking, I use photography to record forms that interest me and a sketchbook to develop ideas. Then I work in the studio to subtly transform the collected images. Of course it's never quite so staightforward. My imagination takes over at some point and then there are images I have to make.
