My work is illustrative in that it always depicts the things I see around me, places and objects. I like to collect images, draw them, store them in my sketchbook and then use them to make a print. I draw in pen and ink and I will explore an image by drawing various compositions – whether from the natural or the constructed world, my work is always structural, I always look for the line and pattern that occurs in whatever I’m drawing!
I am a member of the Regional Print Centre in Wrexham and currently my preferred printing techniques are lino cutting and silk screen printing. All the pictures I have presented here in this collection are made in one of these ways. I really enjoy the physicality of the processes of printmaking and the surprise of the image as it emerges colour by colour.
