Working both figuratively and in abstraction, I enjoy the process of discovering images through combining exploratory printmaking techniques with intentions or ideas of landscape, with a focus on geological forms and the elements. My work is inspired by experiences, memories and the imagining of places. Using mediums including etching, linocut and monoprint, I create images with contrasting lines, shapes and the considered introduction of colours and textures to interpret the experience of landscapes to create images that are suspended between reality and fiction.
I often start with collage and photography to visualise ideas, and work on them to make prints in my studio. Most of my prints are hand pulled on my 18th century etching press in my London Studio.
Artist residencies include Old Jet, Suffolk, and NES, Skagastrond, Iceland. You can read more about my time in Iceland on the NES blog.
In 2021 I was invited to take part in the Arts Territory Exchange's 'Iceland: Mobility, Spatiality, Virtuality' one day symposium, an online event. You can listen to all the contributors' recordings here.
Commissions include the Globe Theatre, London in 2019, where I was the Bankside Banner Artist. You can read about the project on the Globe's blog here.
