I've returned to screenprinting following retirement and have benefitted enormously from being part of the Oxford Printmakers Co-op community - sharing ideas and experience - and having the opportunity to take part in exhibitions and projects such as print exchanges. All this has brought me into contact with the larger UK (and indeed global) community of printmakers, which has been, and continues to be, a hugely rewarding experience. For this Print Exchange I chose to do a screenprint based on a photo I took of a cafe in Valencia, which for me represents a modern example of a community coming together, to drink coffee and interact - Cafe Society!
