I am currently working on combining impressions from natural objects with drawing. The drawings are in the form of cut paper stencils of birds – gulls and rooks. I have been inking feathers and printing them onto fine Japanese paper – Maruishi – but with the stencil in place the feathers form the background to the birds. Several layers are combined to make the image. You can see the finished layers working together to form the final image on my Instagram page.

The photographs here show the stencils at various stages of printing.

I’m excited to be working on a commission now, for someone who wrote her PhD on rooks!
