I am currently working on a series of extended pencil drawings of clouds. I am posting my daily progress on my Instagram page so please follow me to see the drawings develop.
This year, I have switched my regular drawing classes to working as an online class - setting weekly drawing projects with tutorials, resources, and contextual links. Please contact me if you are interested on finding out a little more about these as there are some spaces available for autumn.
Prints and drawings are for sale (unframed). All my prints are printed by hand on an etching press, and are sometimes part of a small, signed edition or are one-off artist's proofs. Some prints are part of a suite, all of which may not be shown on this website. Please feel free contact me if you would like to find out a little more about any of my work.

I work primarily in the intaglio print processes of drypoint and collagraph, these have a tactile quality as the line or image literally leaves an indentation in the paper. For me this provides a link to the senses, and yet contrasts with the static imagery I create in which an object is frozen for a moment in the memory. The fine detail of a line on paper draws the viewer in closer, and causes a moment to pause and reflect.
Drawing allows a more direct approach to creating an image, and recently I have been considering the line between observational drawing and exploring a more expressive approach to the physical mark.
