Edith's artwork has evolved from childhood doodling to highly detailed pen and ink illustrations and more recently she has achieved a new dimension through the art of printmaking. In recent years she has become drawn towards printmaking, exploring the soft velvety lines and textural beauty of printmaking and the endless possibilities and techniques applied.
Edith has been involved in many community printmaking projects that include exhibitions, open workshops in her home studio which supports those new to printmaking and for those with some experience. Edith draws on her memory of local plants and animals in the places she has visited ranging from Europe, Pacific Islands, South East Asia, Far North Queensland and the Top End of Australia.
Her drawing skills have been translated onto a variety of print plates that include drypoint, stencil, monoprint, etching, wood block and collagraph works, either hand coloured or printed with multi coloured plates. She is experimenting with layering various plates particularly with images using light sensitive film exposures so that fine details can be reproduced on metal printing plates for etching. These methods have been combined to create artist books which is a new direction.
