I am lucky enough to live in beautiful rural location and this is the inspiration for my work. I discovered my love of print making about 15 years ago and I found the different printing techniques, including collagraph, dry point and lino cut allowed me to give real expression to my pictures. I mainly use the mono type method of printing as I can experiment in a more spontaneous way with mark making and adding different colours and textures to the same core plate. This approach helps me capture how different light transforms the image and changes the emotional response of the viewer to the picture. Core themes are Owls, Birds, Fish, Trees and Landscapes and I have revisited these often in my work.
