Dorothy FreemanAlthough I was initially drawn to oil painting as my preferred medium, my 'brilliant career' was interrupted by marriage, the arrival of six children and living overseas for many years. Eventually, back in Australia, I had the chance to go to Hornsby TAFE and printmaking became a major area of interest which I then pursued for two years at East Sydney TAFE, specialising in the Etching process.

I believe that for me working in tandem with oil painting has influenced the way I approach the art of Printmaking, resulting in the production of painterly prints which are due in part to the multi - layering of colour and partly because of my need to express myself as a painter. The thing I love about printmaking is that it is a fantastic vehicle for the ongoing exploration of ideas and themes.
