In the studio...
Based in Lancashire I am surrounded by a varied landscape, providing an abundance of inspiration which forms not only the basis of my work but provides comfort in its certainty and cyclical nature.


My background in graphic design continues to influence my prints as I explore the sculptural forms and textures observed within the landscape; be it the line of a fence, the texture of a hillside or the contrast between land and sky. For many years I have used the technique of collograph printing to express these qualities. 


Although I gather a great deal of photographic research, I work mainly from memory. My intention is to avoid any literal interpretation but rather to conjure a moment, a glimpse along the way. Often, when I think about the title later, I discover that I also have an emotional connection to what the image represents.


Recently I have turned to monoprinting, finding that the more instinctive gestural mark making allows me to capture the feel of the elements and the energy of the day.
