I am a woodcut printmaker based in Sussex. My work is centred around the South Downs as it is my home and great love, although I am open to commissions.
I draws directly from the landscape onto wooden blocks, and then carve into the blocks which are then used to create the prints. All of my work is handmade and each one of the pieces is given individual life though chine colle (paper overlay) and hand tinting, just as the mood of a scene shifts with light, time and experience.
I spends time in the places my work depicts, returning to them. My prints are imbued with the emotion of place. Working outdoors enables me to connect with the spirit of the place, capturing the line and fluidity of scenes and localities.
