I lectured at the University of Coleraine on an early 19th-century Gum bichromate printing process rendering painterly images from photographic negatives. My Gum prints were produced on hand made recycled papers - an exhibition of 50 plus portraits of the first British women achievers to break through the 'glass ceiling' in a mans' world.
