Biography

I am a fine art printer, specialising in etching and silkscreen prints. As an etcher I work specifically with the photo-etch technique, a non toxic method of printing developed in the last 30 years. I have developed a number of distinct strategies which I use to determine the structure of my prints, this allows an element of chance within the structured technique of printing. The abstract images are first generated in painting then transferred on to different plates. I use anything up to 4 plates and alternate the order of their printing. The results are astonishingly varied. I where the image is abstract I prefer to work in series or multiple variations, working in this manner each print is a One Off. The above applies to my abstract work. Recently been very interested in the surrounding landscape. Once again using the photo-etch technique I use photographs which I combine with painterly marks these are then combined and etched onto zinc plates.
