I have been inking and printing editions of my last 2 drypoint plates in time for next weekends Open Studio event. I have been asked about the process I use so.I thought I might explain.Each image starts with one of my life drawings …these are real women, that is important to me . Then I work with the image and feel if an archetype wants to make itself known 🌀 The image is then transferred to a perspex plate with etching tools. The the plate is ready to ink and finally print ….. I also use a top plate for ink effects and a mix of colours. These are the last 2 for a while ..Pasithea – Goddess of Visions and Hallucinations and Pistis – Goddess of Honesty.

all acts of love and pleasure
are My rituals.” Doreen Valiente
