Using wood, lino, card, in fact any suitable material that can be cut, scored or glued down to create a block from which I can print an image, is something I enjoy. Printmaking for me is very experimental and unpredictable and I love the way that an unexpected outcome can be more pleasing than the intended one. If you would like to learn a little more about the techniques I use, please go to ‘Printmaking’.
Jevington, an historic village which lies in a valley on the rolling South Downs, is where I live and work. I like to wander around exploring my local patch while keeping an eye open for fossils and interesting flints turned up by the plough. I enjoy gardening too and plant up our plot to attract a variety of wildlife.
I am a member of the Lewes Printmakers based at the Linklater Pavilion in Lewes, East Sussex. Led by book artist Carolyn Trant, we meet up once a week to work on both individual and group projects.
At weekends I am often out and about at various events with my stall. You can find out where I will be next by scrolling through Twitter here. I look forward to meeting you!
