  • Biography

    I especially love the challenge of linocuts, collagraphs and etchings. Currently I am focussing on reduction linocut techniques to portray some of my quirky ceramics and flea market finds, based on my own photographs and drawings.

    I occasionally teach printmaking techniques to small groups of students here in my studio in Bishops Castle or in local art centres.

    I am a member of several local art groups and regularly exhibit with them. I also show artwork at various UK galleries and via Open Studios events.

    For over twenty five years, I taught as a Senior Lecturer at The University of the Arts, London.

    To date, I have written four books on Surface Pattern Design

    ‘1000 Patterns’ published by A & C Black 2003,

    ‘Patterns – New Surface Design’ published by Laurence King 2007, reprinted in mini book form 2012

    ‘Textiles Now’ published by Laurence King 2008

    ‘The Pattern Sourcebook – A century of surface design’ published by Laurence King 2009
