“The best thing about AA2A - Allowing me access to the facilities to make work as a fine art printmaker was invaluable. Without this I could not make work (or afford to travel to Leicester, my nearest private print facility). It also allowed me to research different kinds of photographic printmaking, and it has moved the development of my work forward and allowed me to exhibit. This in turn enriches my career as an artist” University of Derby AA2A Artist 2017-18
