Every now and then at Double Elephant I get the chance to edition other peoples intaglio prints for them. This I find that I actually like the technical challenge of printing consistently in a style of how the artist wants it to be.
In September, I was very lucky to be able to represent Double Elephant at IMPACT 10. IMPACT is the international printmaking conference that takes place every two years.
