Cockeral – Janet Gardner

I am an artist, specialising in dog portraiture and I have found that
printmaking techniques have allowed me to expand the way I can express the character of a dog and to experiment with different subject manner.
I have found it inspiring to discover the texture and depth of image
possible in printed image making.The various techniques including linoprint, collagraphs, screenprint and solar plate etching all have their own pleasures to me as an artist.
Recently I have been using my pencil sketches to form the basis for
solarplate etchings which has allowed me to add form and texture to the
image.
