Welcome to my website

I am a woodcut printmaker based in Sussex. Here on my website you will find a selection of my work, most are from the South Downs, as this is my home and a great love, I do have pieces from further afield, and am also open to commissions.

I draw directly from the landscape onto wooden blocks, I then carve into the blocks and print from them. All of my work is handmade and each one of my 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 spend 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.

Alongside my regular galleries I am always happy to show customers a section of prints at bip-Art workshop in Kemptown, www.bip-Art.co.uk just be in touch to arrange a visit.

The Big Steam Print!

I was part of the Ditchling Museums exciting #bigsteamprint project earlier this year. We made giant lino blocks and printed them with a Steam Roller!
You can see my efforts, along with many more, at the Phoenix Gallery, Waterloo Place, Brighton on Wednesdays through to Sundays until 21st August.

The Alfriston Galley is on the high street in the quaint village of Alfriston and the Skylark is a lovely shop in the Needlemakers in Lewes.
