Dorothy fell for printmaking while at Camberwell School of Art, especially etching. Michael Rothenstein convinced her to play experimentally with monoprinting using found objects and since then she has revisited printmaking often throughout her life, prints informing her paintings and visa versa.
She has recently been working on etchings of the coastline, which were part of an exhibition of prints in Iceland with a reciprocal exhibition in Scotland. Dorothy has recently had a major retrospective at Florence Arts Centre in Cumbria.
Dorothy says 'Printmaking is full of surprises as until you turn over the paper you never totally know the result.'
