Susie Perring works almost entirely in aquatint (images made up entirely of tones, with no drawn lines) or she makes monoprints painted directly on to the printing plate.
"I love aquatints for the range of contrast possible, and for the velvety effect it gives, especially with darker colours. Much of the work is made using multiple plates, which are laborious to create, but give wonderful luminous colours in the prints. Almost all of the prints on show are aquatints."
Susie Perring went to the London College of Printing in 1963-1967, and then worked as a graphic designer in the 60s and 70s. In 1984, she started full time as an artist, specialising as a printmaker in etchings, line and aquatint. She also taught print at the LCP and for the Outreach programme of Dulwich Picture Gallery's Education Department.
