"During my residency at the Frans Masereel Centre, I wanted to research the possibilities of embossing through play and experimentation with its techniques.

What interested me was printmaking in the material sense, especially the coexistence of plate and paper. In what way can the features of the plate be reflected in the print? Can these features be altered during the printing process? And what role does paper play during these procedures?

While researching embossing techniques I encountered braille, where the alphabt is represented by dots embossed on paper. These dots quickly became my main focus of interest and I used the braille system as a foundation to explore new relief printing methods."
