I find the prospect of creating art fascinating. I can hardly wait to start and I rarely run out of ideas. I really love the process of making art and would like this enjoyment to come through my work. Printmaking allows me to make multiple images. These can then be incorporated into a variety of different art forms such as artists’ books, 3D works, textiles, collages, scanned into the computer and manipulated. I don’t like creating perfect pieces; rather I like a random, accidental look. I feel very fortunate to be able to devote as much time as I want to art and hope to do so for a very long time!
CONVERSATION WITH THE MAKER(CWTM) Did you always envision a life as an artist?
PATSY BUSH(PB) As far back as I can remember I have loved to draw. It was the one thing I could do well but I had no idea this could lead to a career. So I became a teacher. However I ended up teaching graphics, illustration, computer graphics and printmaking all of which have inspired and delighted me.
