I am a Yorkshire based artist and printmaker and take inspiration from the landscape around me as well as from a small stretch of the North Cornwall Coastline, a place that has been a haven and retreat for the last 20 years. The landscape there is constantly changing between visits. The weather and the sea alter the geography of the beaches, erode the rocks and play tricks with the colours. I have tried to record the physicality of some of these changes in my prints. They are an emotional response to these ever shifting landscapes.

The Still Life works, despite containing recurrent vase, jug and bowl motifs are a study in form, colour and the relationships between these elements much as a landscape would be. I love building up the layers of colour and imagery until the composition and colours are working well. Some of the prints are made up of many layers, some may only have two or three. To see this process in more detail please watch this video. Giorgio Morandi and William Bailey are two huge influences on my Still Life work.

There are various processes employed in the making of these prints and paintings including monoprinting with lino and stencils, etching, screen-printing, digital grounds, and oil painting. All are printed on archival acid free printmaking papers.

As well as making art I work as a Principal Learning Officer and Part Time Lecturer at Leeds Beckett University teaching printmaking.
