Statement

I particularly enjoy working with lino, collographs and etching.  I like to use nature as a source of inspiration and often turn the images into abstract forms. Sometimes I like to select a fragment to abstact and enlarge.

The use of colour is important to me and I have achieved some successful results with viscosity prints using layers of colour.  I like to produce small variable editions and like to contrast strong flat colour with interesting texture.

Background

I have studied printmaking at the London College of Printing and have exhibited at various London based galleries.  I produce hand made greetings cards, some of which are based on my prints which I like to enhance using gold or silver leaf.
