This is an ongoing series of works using gouache on paper. Attainment is the reach, the striving for something and the ladder is my symbol for this. I have painted and repainted Attainment in many different places from the Solomon Islands to Canberra and back to Melbourne. It is a motif I return to again and again. It encompasses all my ideas about print, repetition and the copy as well as having the psychological element of the ladder, striving and climbing.

Painting has always interested me, I studied painting before printmaking, it is a responsive medium that can yield surprising results. I often incorporate painting with print.
