Living in Norfolk, all wildlife is a constant inspiration but having a soft spot for the sea, lots of my art revolves around nautical themes. I find artistic expression as an escape, with time to focus on the object, strokes, ink, paper and allow all materials to integrate and result in a graphic representation of what inspired me, which tends to be nature themed.
I studied Fine Art at university, have participated in exhibitions, and also finished a Postgraduate Diploma in Graphic Design.
Recently I have reignited my passion for lino printmaking which has resulted in a new series of work.Every piece I make is handmade where I use the reduction relief printing method, where each colour is hand printed and then, the next layer of colour is printed on top of the previous one. This is achieved by carving the lino block further, so as to have more depth and dimension. Each print is completely unique, so there are always subtle differences between each one, with variations of colour. My style is graphic with a flare of realism which is my signature. I am so grateful to everyone who is supporting my journey and I hope you enjoy my art.
