Linocut Printmaker

07772 653487


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.

A quick September update before it becomes October.

In the studio, I've prepared a 'demo' block for my next teaching day at Bodnant Art Studios on the 30th and proofing is imminent. Our theme this time is Bodnant - Water and Stone.

Artwave in Lewes and the surrounding villages has ended but the linocut of Lewes Castle which I created for the event is still available from Edwards and Todd lovely shop on Lewes High Street.

The bold red and orange colours of 'Heatwave, Conwy', which I had showing at The Royal Cambrian Academy Annual Summer Exhibition, caught the attention of a few people and three of the edition of ten were sold.

I've produced a third 'square' card, to make up a trio of black and white Anglesey landscapes. The new one is of Puffin island. Its available on the greetings cards page, either as a solo card or in a pack of three, along with 'Ynys Llanddwyn' and 'Cwyfan, the little church in the sea'.

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.
