Letcher’s prints reveal both her interest in chaos theory and her study of human nature, “With my back ground in nursing and counselling I am curious about what drives us. What are the ingredients and mechanisms in the cocktails that churn out the substance of our lives?”

For Letcher the processes of print making are instrumental to both her finished work and her own thought processes. “I find that mark making is a way of thinking.  Feelings, ideas and thoughts are explored through the physical act of art making.”

The resultant works have an inherent elegance and contained rhythmical motion; their formal qualities and subject matter equally balanced and interrelated.

Letcher has exhibited in solo shows in Melbourne and placed as a finalist in the Blake Prize.
