Christine Porter: printmaker

Christine Porter began printmaking in 1984 at the McGregor Summer School in Toowoomba. It has developed into an important part of her full time art practice and complements her painting. She uses mainly colour intaglio processes: etching and drypoint on metal and plastic. In 1996 she set up Full Moon Editions  in Lismore, with an Artequip B580, a Richeson table press, and an antique letter press. Career highlights include two etchings in the National Gallery of Australia, prizes Australia wide, a solo exhibition in Edinburgh, as well as representation in many smaller public, corporate and private collections worldwide. more information. Her 2006 Bachelor of Visual Arts majoring in printmaking has added a theoretical dimension to the printmaking part of her practice.
