The above work continues to explore how ideas can be initially generated bringing together icons and imagery from a variety of different sources, further developing this information into compositions and finally selecting an appropriate arrangement to be made as a large linocut print. The starting information came from photographs, text, found information, fabric, the drawn mark, magazine cut outs, downloads from internet etc. The aim was to build upon previous research/learning and enhance my personal visual language by bringing together eclectic images/information to reveal and challenge my preconceived notions of picture making. This new process involved collage drawing and a continual editing of suitable information throughout development work. The final cutting of the matrix was done by hand. An innovation for my practice was to cut away all negative areas, leaving the line to carry the ink in a positive manner. The content of this work explored ideas of autobiography, nationality and locale. These avenues of research were developed culminating in a solo exhibition at Foyer Gallery, Aberdeen,  and a three-person exhibition at Rendezvous Gallery, Aberdeen with Lennox Dunbar and Claire Roberts .
