Many opportunities exist within the urban landscape for artistic practices. Jemma's practice explores the landscape, documenting social and historical significance's that are visible of being lost. Decaying architectural surface layers provide a trace and glimpse of our past history, fueling her desire to visually record and document these transient states. The use of traditional printmaking processes  supports her vision in the subjects that she depicts. Textures and marks are important to her practice as it helps express what her eye witnesses in the urban landscape. The etching process requires an enforced decay whereby the acid bites into the copper plate, resonating with the natural decay of the structures that she records. By documenting crumbling forms, she hopes to make society more aware of their direct environment and the history that we are losing from urban expansion and redevelopments. She hopes people will slow down and properly consider subjects that too many of us would normally walk straight past and ignore.


Artist Support Pledge

Due to Covid-19 many of us have lost work, had exhibitions cancelled and seen sales drop. In an attempt to alleviate some of the stress Matthew Burrow instigated the Artist Support Pledge. The concept is simple. Artists post images of work that they are willing to sell under £200. Every time the £1000 mark has been reached they pledge to buy another artists work for £200. 
Below are the works I am offering at a reduce rate to support this fantastic idea. by investing in an original hand made print you be supporting my practice. In return this will allow myself to support other artists and makers, completing the circle.
I have limited prints available. Please email me if you are interested in pledging.
