Mary Campbell Ormskirk
I love to draw and paint people and scenes I observe at home and on journeys near and far. Sometimes immediately or maybe years later, this store of personal experiences inspires fresh visual ideas which I express in printmaking. In particular the process of making collagraph plates is a playful and on occasion unpredictable way to explore meaning, memory or narrative through structure and form. Viscosity printing is the means I use to experiment with the fantasy and emotion of colour.
