I graduated in Visual Art from the University of Wales, Aberystwyth in 1991 specialising in painting and photography. Recently I have moved into printmaking and collage. I work in the British romantic tradition, and am particularly influenced by Neo-romantic artists of the 1940s and the Surrealist movement.
My work concerns our relationship with landscape and our place in nature, ecologically, spiritually and emotionally. Recent etchings have been primarily influenced by Samuel Palmer and John Minton; they explore modern landscapes in an antique style and are sometimes populated with figures using modern technology.
“These screenprints are developed from drawings in pastel made out of doors. The translation into a new medium is the thrill, like seeing your children grow up in ways you could not anticipate.”
