I am a self-taught printmaker living in the East Midlands. After over 25 years of working in the clothing design industry and trying to fit in time for printing, a timely redundancy gave me the impetus to pursue printmaking full time. I have never looked back!
The main focus of my practice is creating reduction linocut prints. I’m excited by the ‘absolute’ decision making that this process requires. Many of my images are printed from dark to light, as I am intrigued as to how the colours perform quite differently and give some unexpected and surprising results. My work features the countryside and coastal scenes, plants, animals and still life. I love nature and the contrasts of light throughout the seasons, which I try to portray in my work.
