Hey Gorgeous 2000

I was born in England and moved here six years ago. I’m trained in fine art and design with GNVQ, DipFA and a BA. I specialised in printmaking for three out of five years in further education in the UK and in Sydney. For three years I have been the main printer at a fine art printing studio. Printing works for such artists around Australia including Charles Blackman, Martin Sharp, Alan Oldfield plus many more. I mainly work with woodblocks but this print is an etching. The plate was aquatinted to black, over a softly bitten line image, then worked into with a burnisher and scraper, resulting in a moody image, which is what I was looking for. The image is of two people having fun at a bar with a couple of drinks.
