Printmaking entails many innovative techniques and processes, some of which are to be explored during this course. With the unique natural setting of Farrera, deep in the Catalan Pyrenees, as our backdrop we will use the landscape as inspiration to create images with a focus on expressive and spontaneous gesture. Used languages: Catalan, Spanish and English.

While the landscapes are real, there is a merging of present adopted European landscapes and those which long for the Australian landscape of my past. I am interested in what landscape holds for the individual in terms of memory, private connection and a sense of belonging.”
