My printmaking practice is based on observation and experimentation.
Starting points may be walks in the countryside, found natural items from the allotment, photographs or assembled objects directly in front of me in my studio. Each approach allows for exploration in methods and practice to create the plates used for my prints.
My printmaking includes collagraphs from cardboard plates; etchings from hard-ground drawings and soft-ground impressions. Combined with aquatints these provide endless possibilities for experimentations in layers of shape, form and textures.
Educated in Fine Art at Central St Martins School of Art & Design, I turned to intaglio printmaking 10 years ago while travelling and living in Brazil. On my return to London I first built on these experiences at Morley College to literally extend my language of printmaking. I now base my artistic practice at the Thames Side Print Studio in south east London.
