I am a fine art printmaker, living and working in Dorset. I create original, individually inked prints in limited editions of no more than twenty.

As a printmaker, I use a variety of techniques, particularly collagraphy, linocutting and monoprinting (please see 'Processes' for more information). My main source of inspiration is the natural environment and in particular, the world of plants.  I use natural plant materials to create collagraph blocks, which result in highly textured final prints.  However, not everything is suitable for such treatment and so I use reduction and multi-block lino cutting as alternative techniques to represent more complex structures.  My most recent experiments have involved printing directly with pressed plant materials.

My aim is to try and convey some of the pleasure I experience when looking at plants, trees and the landscape in general. I have therefore been pleased to receive the following comments from visitors when opening my studio for Dorset Art Weeks:

"Beautiful images, I would happily live with all of them."

"enriching and nourishing to the soul"

"the outside inside – essence of nature in the prints themselves"

"Lovely vibrant work, really refreshing."

"Fab colours and designs."
