I make prints inspired by landscape using inks of varying viscosity, so that each print is unique.

I enjoy printmaking because it involves two creative steps, the making of the plate and the subsequent inking work with various colour combinations. I usually work with aluminium plates and employ a slash and burn technique using parcel tape to create complex textures, before etching. During the creative process the best plates take on a life of their own and become abstracted from the original inspiration.

Sharing a studio with Jan Hopkins has introduced me to the intricate world of book art and some prints become the inspiration for small booklets . Jan and I also collaborate on making altered books.

STUDIO: Hope Road studio is a converted stable in a lovely garden setting. I share it with book artist Jan Hopkins. Fine art prints, artist books, original drawings and photographs will be on show and for sale. I intend to produce new work throughout Open Up.
