Although trained as an illustrator I am primarily a printmaker. My previous body of work was inspired by my love of walking in the Peak District. More recently I have been taking more of my imagery, inspiration and ideas from the urban lanscape in which I live. Taking the time to walk and look around the city I have discovered interesting contrasts between the natural landscape and the man made structures. These images are presently work in progress. My final prints are built using a lengthy process of building up layers using a combination of different printmaking techniques including solar etchings, collagraphs, mono prints and stencils.
