Bernhardine works in a figurative style, and uses the medium of printmaking to express a personal narrative on life as she sees it. Her prints interpret the world in a lighthearted, satirical narrative on the human condition. The work contains references to landscape, places, and the imaginary world. Bernhardine uses many personal, universal and esoteric symbols. She mainly uses intaglio printmaking methods such as Etching, and Drypoint on copper, zinc and aluminium, with other techniques, such as Relief, Collagraph and hand-colouring, to add variety and interest to her work.
