From childhood Bridget has always been interested in arts and crafts but came to printing later in life. An evening class in printmaking at York College led her to fall in love with the sense of adventure and exploration within the printing process. She uses a variety of methods including collagraph, lino cuts and mono-printing, sometimes incorporating calligraphy in her printing. Her printing plates include all sorts of materials from nature and from the human world – leaves and stalks, textured wallpapers, cheese wrappings, fabrics, tree bark, anything that works.
Bridget draws inspiration from the world around and from the work of other artists and printmakers. She seeks to reflect and celebrate the beauty of creation in colour, form and texture. She is always experimenting with different techniques, always developing her skills and never wants to lose the joy of creativity.
