  • Biography
    My passion for the sea in all its' turbulence, its vagaries, its' Jekyll and Hyde character, the way it changes with the light and the wind and weather. Different every time you look. The way it makes me feel so energised, or centred and calm, I can never get enough of my love of the sea and its' coastline. A passionate printmaker, this translates into my multiple plate linocuts, printed with transparent inks to give powerful, colourful images which come from my heart, from my memories and my years of experiences.
