About

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.

    1. Hello Ronnie!
      Ooh, lovely, so glad you found it. I seem to have gone down the photography path of late but I am going to make a much bigger effort to post my sketches and lino prints on here too. See you soon!

    1. Hi Mick, thank you! And thank you for the follow too!
      I married into the Power family who do indeed have very strong Irish connections, and a lot of nuns… Myself, I am a British mongrel – English, Irish and Scottish forbears, so a bit of a mutt!!
