- a self taught printmaker who originally studied Theatre Design at Nottingham Trent University.
The precision and risk of messing it all up is one of the things I love about lino printing. Having not been formally trained in the techniques I am freer in my approach, I enjoy the fuzzy edges and love working into the prints with paints and ink.
I create both one colour prints (one press of the carved lino creates the image) and reduction prints (the first colour is printed then the lino cut away where I want that colour to remain, then the next colour is printed and the lino cut away where I want it to remain and so on) in my exploration and my interpretations of the rhythms and patterns I perceive in wild things and places. This year I have begun to experiment with printing onto fabrics and hope to have some examples for the Oxton Art Fair 2016.
