ABOUT THE ARTIST

I focus largely on intaglio processes and at present my particular interest is mezzotint. I hand rock copper plates to the rich velvety black that is unique to mezzotint, and then bring images to life with specialist tools using the dark to light method. I find this process especially magical: it is time-consuming, engrossing and an absolute labour of love. I also create monotypes and etchings with similar joy.
