  • Biography

    I am an artist printmaker based in Hove, UK who works in the mediums of linocut and black ink drawing. I am inspired by subjects around the themes of birds, nature and architecture and I like to create bold, linear images through detailed mark making. My love of printmaking as a medium means that all of my prints are in limited editions. Each print has been individually pressed by hand and will be slightly different to others in its edition and I like to print onto select washi papers made from natural fibers by the Awagami factory in Japan.

    I have an artistic background, having specialised in art subjects all throughout school and college and graduating in Fine Art: Painting at Bath Spa University in 2008 but I am a self-taught printmaker. I started working for an independent specialist art supplies company in 2012 and I honestly feel like I’ve learnt more about art from working there than I did through studying it! I discovered my love of lino almost by accident - I wanted to learn more about the materials that I was selling as part of my job and I fell in love with the process as soon as I tried it.

    Since 2016 I have been selling my work online, through artists open houses (AOH) and at art fairs but things really started to accelerate and develop in 2018. I curated my first ever artists open house in my own home and I launched 'Print Club'; a space I've created for printmakers to have access to presses and printmaking facilities and I teach beginners linocutting workshops there too.

    In 2019, my linocut ‘Eastbourne’ was selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, which is still to this day my biggest achievement to date!
