18 Years of Printmaking I am celebrating 18 years as a printmaker after a lifetime of painting. Since I moved from the village of Melbourn into Cambridge ten years ago I have been experimenting with techniques new to me. It's so important not to stand still. Printmaking is full of challenges and I love them. Artist's Limited Edition Prints: I only produce artist's limited edition prints. The editions are seldom more than 10 and never more than 20. Each print in an edition, being hand-made, will be very slightly different from the others. Please don't confuse the work that I and other printmakers produce with giclee prints, which are mechanical reproductions of artwork and may run to runs of many hundreds. With experience, my work has become simpler and bolder. I like to exploit the effects that come from using layers of transparent inks, each new one changing the last.
