Inspired by the theme of 'self' i chose to look around my home for signs of life left behind, during lockdowns the house felt like a liminal space, what once was filled with people now only had remnants of the human prescence in the form of discarded dishes and wear and tear of the home. I looked at my own prescence and experience as well, taking a moment to experience the space and look at what interests me photpgraphng them for later use in prints or sketches. Then I leaned towards etching in my processes because of its ability to show the marks, wear and tear of the process. Its able to give an impression of the area and the sense of soemthing having been there, leaving behind fragments of themselves and indeed on the plate i leave my own prescence with my markmaking and ideas on the plate.

HEY! MY NAME IS...
