Linocut Printmaker

I draw, I sketch and produce mixed-media collages but my absolute passion is for linocutting, and it has been since the mid 1990's. I enjoy the physical process of cutting and carving the lino with freshly honed tools and I find the variety of styles and marks I can achieve with such simple materials always challenging but endlessly surprising and satisfying.

2024 is well underway and teaching & speaking was the flavour of the first couple of the months.

My talk at the Regional Print Centre Print Symposium on February 14th went without a hitch and this was followed up with a great two-day Reduction Linocut workshop at RPC.

I've promised myself a clear window of time to focus on my own work for a while, with one new edition ready for uploading to the website very soon and another large lino of the Ogwen Valley just started. You can follow the progress of this new one on Facebook and Instagram.

Reduction linocutting is one of the most complex and intriguing forms of relief printmaking - it requires having to work with a reversed sketch or drawing, being able to envisage multiple layers of tone and colour, all whilst working toward a final image which exists only in my head.

The reduction process involves using a single block of lino which is progressively cut away for each layer of colour. As the block is essentially destroyed during the process, a reduction print can never be reprinted or re-editioned, guaranteeing a genuinely limited edition.
