As much as I love using laser cutters my other love is print. I try to get in the print room as much as possible; printing cannot just enhance laser designs but can help create new designs. In my current work I have been combining both processes. I find printing can be quite therapeutic and is a great escape from our busy studio.
Some of my laser cut designs have come from my time experimenting in the print room. I find that from experimenting with layering in the print room I can create new shapes from my drawings. Layering is something I explore a lot, be that layering of prints or layering print and laser engraving.
Over on my YouTube page I have made a couple of short videos showing some of my printing and the sample pieces I have made ready to laser engrave.
