To me, viewing and/or making art is a chance to escape the ordinariness of the everyday and see something new or in a different way. My images might be reminiscent of, or a totally new take on, something once seen or imagined by me or the viewer. As I am arranging the elements in an image I consider the different printmaking techniques for the different texture or line it can create. I like to work in smaller sizes because I think it creates an intimacy between the artwork and the viewer.
