I love the processes involved in printmaking. I work mostly in intaglio (etching and
collagraph) and relief (lino and woodcut) but also in monotype and monoprint.
Printmaking can be a slow and almost contemplative way of working. There is always an
element of surprise and, even in an edition from the same plate, each print is unique.
Nothing can be taken for granted!
I draw inspiration from the immediate surroundings in my garden, the local Herefordshire
landscape and further afield. I am fascinated by the ever-changing light and the patterns it
makes. On my walks and wanderings glimpses of small details, shapes and movements,
along with subsequent sketches, are utilised in the print process.
