“My work centres on the natural world. I depict what I see around me, and draw on my deep memories of my rural upbringing. Sometimes it is just a glimpse from a train window that inspires my printmaking.
Landscapes and seascapes and huge skies are favourite topics and I enjoy depicting the ever changing effects of light and colour at different times of the day, and as the seasons roll through the year.
My favoured printing process is dry-point and mono print, using using two separate plates. I often employ carborundum which produces deep rich colour where the ink and paper become one. Here I keep my editions small, often only 5–10 prints. The mono print plate determines that each print is unique.
I also work with etching and aquatint, and with Intaglio gravure, sometimes working with imagined landscapes.
