Angela Brookes

Angela Brookes trained at the Central School of Art and London University and taught for some years before becoming a full time printmaker.

An elected member of the co-operative groups 'Greenwich Printmakers' and 'Southbank Printmakers', and a member of the newly formed group 'Printmakers-inc', she works from her own studio, and in the newly opened Thames Barrier Print Studio on the south bank of the Thames.

Angela work explores the mystery of the landscape.

Her favoured printmaking process is etching, using soft ground, aquatint and spit-bite. She often uses two plates to achieve the desired colour, and some are hand coloured. She also works with dry-point plates in conjunction with carborundum. Here the editions are very small, between 5 and 20, and she likes to vary the wiping on the plates which makes each print unique, hence 'edition variable', and 'unique print'.

I find the process of printmaking endlessly fascinating. I enjoy exploring different processes to create prints, some traditional and some more experimental and contemporary. I often combine dry point and carborundum to create the deep blacks where the ink and paper become one. Currently I am working with colour using dry point and mono-print to create individual prints.
