Jill Desborough

Gained BA Degree in Mixed Media 3-D Design at Brighton Art College in 1980,and since then she has been working as a freelance sculptor and model-maker. Started etching about nine years ago. "For me the Alphabet format is perfect for exploring a fascination with the bizarre, curious and theatrical, dark fairytales and mythology. The images are from a second series- 'Anatomical Alphabet' and are etchings with aquatint."

I am always drawn to bizarre, gothic and theatrical imagery mostly from my imagination, and this feeds into the work including 2 etching Alphabets, the Zodiac and the rod puppets.These are also inspired by books like The Canterbury Tales and Gormengast. I am a member of 2 printmaking groups - 12PM and Cuckoo Farm Studios.
