Why do I do it?

Rediscovering the printing process after nearly 40 years has been an interesting process ~ disappointingly modern inks are not as rich in colour (earthy colours are very plastic like) and modern waterbased inks don't become part of the surface, they sit on it, which is incredibly frustrating ~ the reason I took up printing in the first place was because of the absorbed flatness of the pigments.

I was delighted to be included in an exhibition during 2012 that also featured artworks by Jeff Koons, Yoko Ono, John Waters, Donald Baechler, Marilyn Minter, Ed Ruscha, Polly Apfelbaum, Adam Fuss and Kiki Smith . See image

Other exhibition highlights of 2012 include having one of my prints exhibited and becoming part of the collection at ASWARA Gallery, National Arts & Heritage Academy (ASWARA), Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA

Reflection - Tias in Lanzarote

Tias, Lanzarote - August 2012

This self portrait above was taken using a Pentax P30, 35mm film camera, which uses manual focus lenses with the K-mount bayonet fitting. The lens used to take this photograph was a Rikenon 1:2 50mm, which was originally off a Richo KR-10 (super).
