“I live in Falmouth within walking distance of the influential John Howard Print Studios where I turn my sketches and photographs into finished prints. I’m interested in exploring edges in the landscape and the juxtaposition of static and moving forms.
Printmaking encourages endless exploration and experimentation. I create detailed etchings and monoprints that express my interest in the tension and fragility I observe where water, land and rock coincide, be this in a mountain stream, off the Cornish coast or beneath Arctic cliffs.
In contrast, my hand pulled screen-prints are bold, joyful experiments in colour combinations based upon algae, ferns, seeds and lichen that abound in Cornwall. All my work is a pared-back exploration of unfamiliar perspectives, scale, pattern and abstraction found in nature.”
