I began painting in 2008, when I joined Ashby Art Club, where I received a lot of help and encouragement. I also took advantage of Adult Education and WEA lessons too. I like to paint all kinds of things and I don’t have favourite subjects yet. I discovered printing in Autumn 2015. A one day lino cutting course got me hooked. This winter I have also learned silkscreen printing and photographic etching. I joined Leicester Print Workshop in February 2016 and enjoy the helpful and friendly atmosphere and excellent facilities.
When I print something that works it is really satisfying, and when I don’t it spurs me on to have another go! I find that with printing as a hobby I never get bored!
