Welcome to my website

 

I am a Cambridgeshire based fine art printmaker whose work is rooted in the natural world and ranges from drypoint etchings, monoprints, wood engravings and woodcuts though I specialise in linocut. I am focused on printmaking following the purchase of my own presses and if you browse my site you’ll see my latest work inspired by nature’s landscapes and ancient cultures. To learn more about my inspiration, influences and how I work please look at my artist’s profile.


Cambridge Open Studios Following successful collaborations over two years with friend and fellow artist Lynn Norton I exhibited on my own in my own studio last year, including printmaking demonstrations as part of my exhibition. This was great fun and I am doing the same this summer. Come along on the 8th / 9th or 15th / 16th July 2017. See my News and Events page for details.

 

Print Workshops These fun, friendly days printing have proved very popular. They run from 10am till 4pm at £60 per person including all materials here in the orangery overlooking the fields in Hilton, Cambridgeshire (PE28 9QN). I run single day Linocut, Monoprint and Drypoint workshops that cater for all abilities. For those with more experience I run a two-day multi-block lino course. Go to my Workshops page for more info, dates and feedback from previous workshops. Please use my Contacts page if you want to book for these workshops or to be put on the mailing list for more information.


Evening Class I have been teaching Lino Courses at Swavesey Village College in Cambridgeshire. In the Autumn term I am excited to be teaching a 5 week course called Multi Layered Linocut. This is for students who have done some linocut before and it will cover Reduction and Multi-Block methods to create multi layered linocuts. Please check the college's website www.swaveseyvc.co.uk and click on community education or call the college on 01954 234488 or e-mail community@swaveseyvc.co.uk for more info or to enrol.
