I am a fine art printmaker specialising in linocut and screenprints. I enjoy the restrictions that these two disciplines impose on you as an artist: having to render images in a limited number of layers in flat colour.
I am heavily influenced by natural forms and 20th century British art, particularly the St. Ives school, as well as mid-century design.
My work varies from the figurative to the abstract, mainly because the approaches to the two forms are so different, and after one I like to take a break by embarking on the other! However, what ultimately unites all my work is the attempt to attain balance through shape, colour and texture.
