I work from my own studio using

my Bewick press. I often start by working ‘en plein air’ in the fields, the hills or on the marshes working first in pastel, simply sketching and observing. These early sketches

are an emotional response to

the subject and feed both my

printmaking and my imagination.

I use various printing techniques

including etching, drypoint, carborundum, and monoprint.

I like to keep the print editions small, often only 5 - 10.

More recently, I have been experimenting with colour, and 

I hope to extend the use of monoprint as I find it so exciting with each print offering something different. I am also experimenting with Intaglio gravure plates (also known as solar plate or photo gravure) which provide me with

yet another set of rules and further horizons to explore”.
