I enjoy all forms of printing often combining them
Nature and trees fascinate me, they are frequently
in my work.

I am interested in trees and am fascinated by the way in which they can communicate with each other with the help of mycorrhizal fungi. I work in different mediums and in this print have used a cut log as the starting point, inking it up and hand burnishing it. I used Japanese Kasuke 44 grms paper as it is thin and strong. I finished the print using screen print and linocut block print.
