I was already abstracting from mountain scenes and images I had taken to do with the mountain environment and skiing. I wanted to break this idea down even further and still look at mountain and ski related surfaces, and as I love creating textures and interesting surfaces, i knew the best way to do this would be MARK MAKING with load of different utensils and materials to break down the drawings and images eve more. I was looking at cracked ice and re creating it through mark making. Here I used a broad palette knife to create lines and smudges and textures to reinforce the effects of cracked ice. This is one of my favourite prints, I love the pink in the print, and using a fabric that holds its own texture really enhances the print, and is something i aim to achieve across all my prints, a sense of tactile, edgy, bold character.

Texture and surface quality is also a huge part of my work, mark making, thick & thin, dark & light play a huge part in the image i am trying to portray. I have still wanted to capture the surface quality and affects and have them reprinted onto mugs and trays (etc) , because it just creates something exciting, edgy and quirky and a bit out-there! But that's what I love about my style, it is very different, its bold and hard and most of all REAL.
