I work mainly with intaglio printmaking as well as monoprint and monotype. Sketching underpins nearly all of my art work. I love sketching outdoors, responding to my surroundings in different weather and seasons. This is my inspiration and I allow myself to be led by the process and the ink, until I create the mood and atmosphere that I am happy with. I enjoy never quite knowing how it will come out of the press and make the most of the accidental element of printmaking. Since I have moved from Cornwall, I have been exploring my new surroundings for subject matter here in Herefordshire.
For me, being an artist is about sharing and communicating a response to my surroundings. Creating a mood, a feeling about a place and, hopefully, connecting with others.
I am a printmaker and painter, specialising in landscape.
I work in my own home studio, but I have also been an active member of the art community in Cornwall and now I'm making connections here in Herefordshire. I have run workshops as well as selling work in local art galleries. I was also a member of a collective of artists sharing the running of a small gallery in Penryn. Over the last year, since moving to Herefordshire, I have found printmaking groups to join in Malvern and Stroud as well as taking part in local exhibitions and events.
