About me

Me in the studio

I am an artist printmaker based in Hampshire, England. I take my inspiration from man-made objects and industrial and technological heritage, the hidden, overlooked and unseen.

My work can be abstract dealing with concepts of technology. It can also focus in on objects, particularly tools of the trade, parts of aircraft or spacecraft or early computers that were at the cutting edge of technology or on the cusp of change. These objects tell a story and I want to celebrate these objects and concepts.

I am excited by colour and I play with combinations of colours. I use Etching, Drypoint, Collagraph and Collage techniques. These methods involve the erosion of metal and degradation of cardboard substrates, echoing the effects of time and use on my chosen subject matter.

I have a Master’s Degree in Fine Art Printmaking from Wimbledon School of Art. I co-founded Red Hot Press Print Workshop in Southampton England in 2004. I am a visiting tutor at West Dean College in West Sussex.

I exhibit widely in the UK and abroad. I have work in private and public collections in the United Kingdom, Denmark, China, Latvia and Australia.
