Nothing is quite like the moment when you peel the finished print from the block

I aim to portray a sense of shared experience in my work, the moment of stillness when you notice a heron, or a familiar place suddenly unfamiliar in a different light. I am interested in pattern and the atmospheric effects of light.

My prints are mostly lino and woodcuts and I have developed ways of inking that push the medium towards a more painterly finish.

I live and work in Gloucestershire but travel frequently to make work in quiet places in Wales and Scotland too. I am an active member of Gloucestershire Printmaking Co-op in Stroud.

My work was selected for the inaugural ‘Masters of Relief Print’ by the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers and I have had residencies in WWT Slimbridge and Oriel y Parc studio in St Davids. I have also run community printmaking events, making giant prints, for the Forestry Commission and Batsford Arboretum. My work is held in private collections in the UK, Europe and North America
