In the studio...
Returning to a creative environment after a prolonged career break proved immensely rewarding. My time studying at Hot Bed Press
in Manchester opened up huge creative possibilities, with each process allowing experimentation and new discoveries.
In addition, it led to the formation of Reveal Printmakers,
a print collective that regularly exhibits together.
My background in graphic design continues to influence my prints
as I explore the graphic forms and textures observed within the Lancastrian landscapes around my home; often extracting elements to create abstract works in preference to viewing the landscape
as a whole.
