A bit about me
My prints are my emotional response to situations, whether incidents in my own life, dreams, or well known themes such as fairytales and mythology. I used to be a farmer, have always lived in wild, remote places and am always busy which is reflected in the proliferation of animals, greenery and movement in my art.
I cut my prints on vinyl rather than traditional lino as it allows me to achieve a greater degree of delicacy and detail, and I print on a simple Victorian typography press. When dry, I hand paint each print with watercolours. Then comes the framing, which I do myself using a variety of local hardwoods. I make my 3D “buildings” from a collection of recycled materials such as copper, wood and glass, old pianos etc. These buildings have doors and windows which house my prints.
