Writing in October 2013, Sharp states, “A successful artwork contains its energy, it does not loose its strength, but keeps on giving. Such excellence can only be achieved through a diligence that would daunt most.” – Martin Sharp, ARTAND Australia
Sharp also explains Campbell’s painstaking technique used to create her unique woodblock prints. “Cressida’s unusual creation of unique prints where she carves a plywood block. Paints is with water-soluble paints, moisturises the painted block and takes a single impression. Creating the print.” – Martin Sharp, ARTAND Australia
