Santolina - reduction linocut 200 x 200mm, edition size 10


I am printmaker inspired by plants and natural forms - from their colour and the detail of their structure to the visual impact they have on their surroundings. The garden therefore, is one of my key sources, but landscape and occasionally still life will also inspire me.
 The riverside studio in which I work is in beautiful, rural Northumberland and is rich in inspiration.

The majority of my prints are linocuts, a process that I so enjoy from the conception of the image through to the finished print, but I do use other processes too, including lithography, screenprinting or monoprint. Drawing underpins my work, it is where many of my prints begin, in the sketchbooks I keep, and the processes I choose often allow me to integrate drawing in some form or other.

You can view the range of my work using the menu on the left hand side of this page and do get in touch with me if you require any further information about my prints or any other aspects of my work.
