  • Biography
    I am an artist who is inspired by the living form, i run a smallholding, where i have a variety of animals who are a constant inspiration to me. I love wildlife and down on the farm there is no shortage of this either!
    I love to try to catch the personality and movement of the animals in my drawings and prints.
    I start my process with drawings and photo's, then play with the image to find the essence of what i wish to communicate. The printing process can start from there, either in wood cutting, etching or collagraph. 
    When working with wood I mainly construct my image through the reduction process, which can take anything from 3-6 weeks to complete, adding a new layer of colour each time the wood is cut back.
    I love to make images from dry point etching, as this is very close to the drawn image, and can display the energy of the subject freely.
    When etching on copper, i like to use soft ground to draw into, as this again gives a freedom of line to be expressive. Please visit my website to see more work.
