My Printmaking Process

In my fine art practice I work predominantly through the medium of screenprint. Fine art screen printing is a process that involves transferring ink through a mesh screen onto a substrate, in my case paper, to create a print. The screen is coated with a photosensitive emulsion. An image or design is then transferred onto the screen, creating a stencil. Ink is applied to the screen, and a squeegee is used to force the ink through the open areas of the stencil and onto the paper below, creating the printed image. The process is repeated for each color, using a separate screen and stencil for each color.

 Using simple shapes, I assemble abstract compositions that seek to explore ideas relating to harmony and belonging. 

Textile and Surface Design
 

Additionally, I am the founder of a surface design studio called Maluda. I specialise in designing contemporary, bold and often abstract prints and patterns. These can be used on a wide range of products such as home decor, stationery, fabric, wall art and more. I love collaborating with like-minded international makers and brands. 

If you like my style, and could see my prints on your products, do get in touch and we can discuss your project!
