I work in different materials, for the time being with focus on printmaking and drawing.
In the printmaking process I use the technique I feel is best for the work to come. It could be drypoint, etching, woodcut, photopolymer or a mix of these.
In my drawings I use ink, acryl, embroidery ,collage and always on handmade paper.
