What are Gel Prints

July 2022

From the very beginning of studying art, when I was 16 I became interested in print making - so much so that I received an A in A level printmaking as a student of Brighton University.

I continued to have access to printmaking techniques such as lino cuts, etching, mono prints, engraving and drypoint. Later I came across a class to learn how to gel print. This soon became my favourite technique as you don't need too much equipment to produce a decent image, simply a gel plate, inks and paper, it's so simple but the result can be really beautiful.
