Welcome to my website, thank you for stopping by.

So, a little bit more about me….

I am an artist based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire and am currently working mainly with collagraph, drypoint & relief printing processes to create limited edition prints and hand printed, bound and stitched artists books alongside very usable note and sketch books. I have also recently been exploring stencil and mono-printing, enjoying the freedom and exploration of mark making these processes allow me to simply create and play with print, marks, texture, colour and layers. This work is often used in my hand bound book covers.

My work is inspired by the accessible open countryside and landscapes surrounding my home studio and the naturally inhabiting wildlife and flora I find there. Using intricate cutting and applied textures to my collagraph plates allows me to explore the structures and forms of native wildflowers and wildlife, the addition of drypoint further enhances my studies of these forms using the drawn line directly on to the printing plate; I hope to  isolate key elements and sections of the cycle of the seasons or the character of a familiar mammal or bird.

All my original editioned prints are inked and hand pulled in small editions, maximum 30 of each (if I am lucky) and the print plate allows that number or worthy prints for sale before it’s natural deterioration! Due to the processes I use, each of my prints within an edition will also be slightly different from the last, making each one unique.

I don’t sell my prints online for the above reasons but if you are interested in a particular print, please do get in touch with me to arrange to view the actual ones that may be available to buy.
