I always endeavour to keeps a sketchbook to hand ready to sketch life around me, particularly when hiking and camping in the Derbyshire Peak District. These sketches are often used as inspiration for my original handmade prints.
To create my prints I will use many layers of imagery and text that often reveals a sense of narrative. The use of different types of printmaking processes, such as collagraph, monoprint, gum arabic and solar etching, allow me to incorporate my sketches, photography and mark-making to create visual depth, tone and interest.
I will be showing a range of framed and unframed original prints.
