My first introduction to printmaking was at the Central School of Art where I was studying Ceramics. One day each week we were able to visit other departments and I chose the print room. The whole process was a revelation to me, and I was seduced by the magical quality of ink transferred on to paper under intense pressure. I knew it would be something I would return to.
Having worked with clay for most of my professional life, I now find my printmaking is foremost in my practice. My interest has always centred around the natural world and I am drawn to the vast and unpopulated open spaces and huge skies from the flatlands of east Anglia to the mountains of the Alpujarras, Tuscany and the Lake District.
I enjoy depicting the ever changing effects of light and colour at different times of the day and I love the reversal of all the tonal qualities of the landscape after snow has fallen.
