Printmedia and Drawing Alumni

Shellaine Godbold

Shellaine Godbold is an emerging artist based in Canberra. Her primary practice focuses on drawing as a means of understanding and recording her experiences. The works that she creates explore the very human need to make marks and to connect through touch.

Julian Laffan

Laffan’s highly collectable works utilise imagery sourced from the media, film and the internet, and are drawn onto wood and hand-carved. These are shown at times as graphic sculptures and also as prints, and each has a strong narrative element.

Jessica Herrington

My art practice explores installation, painting and sculpture using a wide range of materials including glitter, paint, plaster, polymer clay and chemical crystal growths.

Ben Forster

Benjamin Forster is interested in exploring drawing, both as a physical act and as a cognitive process. This interest has manifested itself in his recent Drawing Machine, a reduction of his own understanding of drawing into a computer program that can draw. This project was included in Hatched 09: The National Graduate Exhibition at the Perth...

Antonia Aitken

Antonia's current practice uses printmaking and drawing processes, particularly etching, woodblock printing and book making. Recently having worked on site in Namadgi National Park, Lake Mungo National Park and Hill End, Antonia is interested in places of cultural, historical and spiritual importance for both aboriginal and non-aboriginal...
