My work is varied in style, medium and scale. I draw, I paint and work in mixed-media but my passion is for linocutting. 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 endlessly surprising and satisfying.

NEWS - 03/07/2021 Now that the successful FLEDGE exhibition in Manchester has ended, my focus turns to producing new work for the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Cambrian Academy and Sea Nature show at Sea Pictures Gallery in Clare, Suffolk in September.

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, making it (and guaranteeing) a truly limited edition.
