I first fell in love with printmaking early on in my artistic studies – carving that first piece of lino proved addictive, then discovering how a single plate allows for experimentation was wonderful. It enabled me to dedicate time to creating one image, then examining the many other properties that make up an image – colour, tone and texture.
It is still my favourite medium after all these years, and I have learnt many more print based processes including, screenprinting, etching, letterpress and my favourite, collagraphs.
I am often found with fingers covered in glue when creating my collagraph plates or equally as covered in ink when at Leicester Print Workshop printing. I remember a tutor on my degree saying that he could always tell when I was immersed in my work, as I was always covered in ink – and I am happy to say, to this day that is still true.
Many of these prints are for sale through Cank Street Gallery, Leicester, but if you can’t find a specific print, or wish to commission a new piece, I would be more than happy to discuss your requirements. I am also happy to consider licencing my work for books or giftware and also undertake illustration commissions. Please contact me with your request and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
