Joan Francis

A print maker using a variety of techniques including dry point, monoprint, etching and collagraph.  I try and work using non toxic materials and methods where possible.

My love of landscape forms the ongoing focus of my work. I study the surface patterns  on both a micro and macro level particularly the textures and colours. Often beginning with a photogragh and sketches the image develops through the less controllable process of  printing and the building up of layers and overlays.

My work is  emotionally and process led whereby more personal issues are expressed.  Themes in my work have been about organic decay and changes over time, things being taken over by something else and also landscape ‘skins’ and human skin and how tough or fragile this might be.
