about the artist

I'm a printmaker & painter, drawing inspiration from the landscape. Working from my studios in Bedfordshire, I try to give expression to thoughts and feelings that unearth themselves, often whilst drawing en plein air.

 

I find the immediacy and spontaneity of monotype particularly rewarding, with one-off prints that lend themselves to painterly and intuitive markmaking. For me, it's the most exciting medium. I love the constant tension between the solid and the translucent - the fixed and the fluid - the intellectual and the emotional.

 

I also believe in the importance of drawing in my method. Even non figurative art benefits from a solid grasp of an all to often overlooked aspect of the creative process. To me, the sketchbook is where you find the artist's soul.
