  • Biography

    I’m an Artist/Printmaker and I mainly work in reduction linocuts, which means I use the same piece of lino and cut away each colour after I’ve printed that layer. It means you end up with hardly anything left on your lino and you can’t print that picture again. I work closely with my photograph and just keep drawing and cutting each layer as I go. Remembering what I cut out is what I keep on the paper. It’s a funny back to front, wrong way round process but I love it. It’s such a lovely thing to see each new colour added, and how they build up to the final image.

    For me a good composition sort of tells a story and leads you into the picture. There’s got to be something worthy of a longer look to see what’s going on. 

    I work from my own photographs and will scramble down rocks to find the right image. 

    There needs to be a focal point and contrasts of light and dark. I love texture and pattern (my background is textile design) I want to make you aware of details you might not have noticed.
