I am an artist/ printmaker producing limited edition prints using a variety of different techniques. These include silkscreen, linocut, collograph, etching and drypoint.Taking inspiration from nature I simplify and abstract natural forms and combine these with colour, pattern, and texture. I hand make my own printing blocks from lino, cardboard, perspex and zinc plate. From the starting point of carefully balancing images with colour, experiments in the print room establish which effects work best together. The final print is often made using several different plates or silkscreens; slight variations may occur in each print making every one unique.
