PRINTMAKER PROFILE

ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a printmaker based in North Yorkshire. I exhibit my work nationally and internationally and teach printmaking workshops locally and regionally.
My work has a sensitivity to drawing and the process of print. I create abstract monochrome prints and drawings that are rich with tone and mark-making, moving from urban landscape inspired images to more abstract compositions.

Most recently I am using my work to explore my family’s journey to the UK from Europe during WW2. Through my own visual language I am trying to piece together and understand their experiences with the fragments of memories they have shared with me.
