The Gold Series
From original pen-and-ink drawings I created a range of Limited edition Vercotype prints. This is a vintage method done by a local Master printer on a crisp white, eco-certified paper. Once returning to the studio, I hand-apply gold leaf metals (a mix of copper, aluminium and zinc) using a time-honoured technique of laying the finest beaten metals onto paper to create a glow. I add the gold to capture the light and energy that connects us all, plants, humans and animals and historically, gold represents preciousness, love and joy, sentiments found in nature and loved ones. A more extensive range of the artworks are available in store at Honest Paper & the Lighthouse Gallery, Newcastle and also Maitland Regional Art Gallery.
