  • Biography

    Almost 20 years a full time printmaker and I am as much in love as the day I pulled my first print! My presses have moved with me, from Borneo to Singapore, from Singapore to Spain, and now on to Denmark, where I have set up my studio and gallery. I am self taught, a book, a way to thick copper plate and a gallon drum of nitric acid, making every mistake you could, and learning, learning as I went along. I have tried to make my shop as fun as possible, experiencing art, should not be about dead serious, but a pleasure, a treasure, a need to come back and above all a voyage amongst pieces that contains heart and soul of the artists who made them. You should not have to be rich to own one of my prints, that is, for me, what printmaking is about, a democratic art form, allowing both you and me to be collectors.
    My inspiration comes from a variety of sources, I have no single line of work, but prefer to make images as they come into my head, through books, I love to read, through radio, music and a huge part, from my daily dogwalks, that not only provide inspiration from nature but also moments of contemplation that results in many of my prints!

    All my prints are printed on best quality printmaking papers (favorites are Zerkall, Fabriano, and Hahnemuelhe) with Charbonnel etching inks.
