Current Art Practice

Printmaking is the current focus of my artistic practice and the majority of my output uses Linocut.

I paint and draw regularly, and have painted for many years before becoming a printmaker. Painting informs my colour mixing, layering and use of translucent or opaque ink.


Art Education

I am largely self-taught in my art practice, supplemented with short courses and sharing practice with other artists.

I studied printmaking at Chesterfield College from September 2012 to April 2013, which got me started with printmaking. I continue to attend courses to increase my skill base and knowledge, on an ongoing basis.
