"This portfolio of work celebrates her independent approach to the print medium and to its long association with storytelling and beautiful etchings released this year."

The spokesperson added: "She cleverly entwines her own experiences with those of dreams and fantasies.

"Gleaned from the frailties of life and exploring the struggles between men and women, this series of original prints is inspired by modern and classic literature and the political and social realities of today."

The exhibition is open from 10.30am to 5pm except on Sunday when the viewing is closed in the mornings.
