PRINTMAKER PROFILE

ARTIST STATEMENT

Most of my work features images from the natural world – landscapes and organic forms. Travelling, walking and gardening all give me inspiration for my printmaking.

I tend to work in monochrome, producing prints which have a strong contrast in tone and form. I use etching, drypoint, collagraph and mixed media techniques, printing onto archival paper, linen and silk. I have exhibited widely in Sheffield and the north of England, most recently at The Ferens, Hull and The Harley Gallery, Wellbeck. An active, founder member of Sheffield Printmakers (SP) I am also a member of Sheffield Visual Arts Group (S.V.A.G.). The latter group campaigns to enhance public access to art and art education.
