Printmaking involves a lot of patience, trials, and failures. It takes the time to learn and understand different printmaking techniques and process. Even of such long process, wanting to see how my ideas turn out encourages me to put my heads down and work hard in my studio – even it didn’t turn out right, it is a reference to the next step.
‘Printmaking’ is not only for ‘making prints’ I believe that it can be broadly applied and use with different medias which give artists wider possibilities in their practice and express their ideas. Also interested in other medias. I enjoy to learn and explore using different materials and share what I have found to my students. Furthermore, to encourage them to incorporate the printmaking skills to their own practice.
