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 (please see 'Processes' for more information) and my main source of inspiration is the world of plants.  In some prints, pressed plants are used either to print from directly or to create collagraph blocks, from which the final images are taken.  I also enjoy using reduction and multi-block lino cutting to represent more complex structures.  Most recently, I have been experimenting with combined techniques, particularly drypoint drawing and chine colle, a method of incorporating collage papers into an image during the printing process.

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."
