PRINTMAKER PROFILE

ARTIST STATEMENT

I gained a BA (Hons) Fine Art in 2002 from the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside, however I specialised in sculpture. After that I have taken various printmaking evening classes, but am largely self-taught in lino printing. I started doing it more seriously in 2012 and am developing and growing my skills all the time. I now work part time for the local University and the rest of the time am a self-employed artist.

I use clean, simple lines to create bright and bold prints. Influenced by nature, much of my work includes animals, plants and wildlife. Having lived in Norfolk since 2009, I draw inspiration from the countryside and coastlines of the county as well as creatures closer to home.
