My work consists of textural, aesthetic forms which are abstract and representational. I love working from actual landscapes and images and creating a response to them through line, mark making and ultimately through printmaking. I use a variety of techniques including collagraphs, etching, lino and woodcuts onto prepared mixed backgrounds. This relationship between the printed and the painted results in a marriage of texture, form and depth which I exploit to the full!
I love sketching to begin my work whether a print or a painting. My paintings allow me to create a different response to what I see. I love using collage, mixed media, oil and acrylic paints to develop layers and mark making techniques.
