Print maker

I am an Exeter based printmaker inspired by the big skies, wetlands and moors of the South West. My work endeavours to represent these ephemeral landscapes using a medium usually associated with bold blocks of colour. I use reduction printing, mono print techniques and various methods of ink thinning to achieve a lightness of touch often described as ‘painterly’.

The creation of my prints is a painstaking exercise using a medium not entirely suited to rendering the fleeting nature of my chosen subject matter! I should be a watercolourist but I love the combination of craft and fine art printmaking offers.

I am a member of Make Southwest (formerly the Devon Guild of Crafstmen) and the Somerset Craft Guild.
