Pressing Issues !

I  dream of having my own etching press.  I have been extremely fortunate over the past 6 months that I have been able to access presses here on Bruny.  I had the use of an etching press on North Bruny Island for a few months over the  Christmas break last year.  Thank you so much Ian for the trust and the use of your studio space – it meant so much to me to have access to a press and have a special place to go and print. Thanks too Micky.   Here it is – a monster of a press that was fantastic to use –
