I am a self-taught artist and discovered printmaking in 2015, while on a "refresher" art course. The beautiful textural effects achieved and the sheer array of techniques instantly captivated me.
I produce small editions of hand-made prints which include linocut, collagraph, monoprint and drypoint explorations, with an emphasis on texture and form. Experimentation and combining media are aims in themselves and often result in unexpected and exciting outcomes.
My work is largely influenced by the diverse geographical landscapes I come across in my travels as well as by the natural world and its wonderful organic shapes. Water and the diffusion of light are also recurrent themes in my prints and sources of endless inspiration.
