/Church of St Sava, Collagraph

Printed on archival quality ‘Arches’ cream coloured paper, this is a collagraph of St Sava Orthodox Cathedral in Belgrade, Serbia. This magnificent building is one of the world's biggest Orthodox Christian churches and the frescoes inside (which are still not complete) are breathtaking.

The printing plate was created by cutting into a cardboard plate and then sealing it with varnish. The next step, was to ink up the plate, ensuring it was rubbed into all the indentations in the plate. The surface ink is then wiped away with scrim and the plate is run through the big manual intaglio press with damp paper. The damp paper is pushed into the grooves under pressure and pick up the ink.

/Green Belgrade, Collagraph & Mixed Media

Green Belgrade Skyline Collagraph with Gold Pen. This print was created using card as a plate. I cut the design into the card, varnished it and then inked it up with a roller in rich bottle green.

My husband is originally from Belgrade and we visit friends and family there very often. This is a classic view of Saborna Church and the ‘Stari Grad’ (OLd City).
