Collagraph Print - created from a card plate made by adding glue, paint, enamel, collaged elements etc. This creates textures which hold the ink in varying degrees and is then printed through the intaglio process. This is a great technique for my animal prints as I can cut the card into the animal shapes!
The very first was my hippo collagraph print he just had to be tried in purple and was so popular the edition sold out completely with most of them going to America!

Recently I have been doing some more animal collagraph prints and couldn't resist doing a few purple ones!
Here's me getting very messy printing a Purple Meerkat.
And a Purple Pony hot off the printing press!
