Janet French:
The ideas and images in my current work are drawn from trees and the spiritual impact of light seen through trees. I use a variety of printmaking mediums including linocuts, woodcuts, Japanese woodcut, screenprint and etching on to handmade paper which I create using leaves and fibres gathered from the local fields and woodlands on which my images are based.

The varied surfaces I am working on require different printmaking methods and I aim to create a symbiosis between print and paper by, for example, allowing the textured surface to break through the image or employing the translucent quality of the leaves by printing on the reverse and allowing the image to show through.
