Drypoint, linocut and collage – edition 4/20 unframed.Recently I have been focussing on the personalities of the individual caught up in the confusion and speed of the modern world. Glitched images that appear on screens gave me some new ideas to play with. I have been experimenting with combinations of printed layers and rearranging them. My aim is to depict a fragmented moment – a ‘Story’ within a tight frame and space.

This piece was inspired by the last lunar eclipse in May 21. The moon turned a beautiful copper and I wanted to capture this stunning moon. Lunar eclipse is a mix of copper, silver and oxidised silver round the edge to keep the warmth. The base is a powder blue to keep the piece bright and uplifting.
My focus was to highlight the croaked claws and nails on their feet. As beautiful as Magpies are, I wanted to create the dark and mysterious side to these creatures with my colour palate and their expressions.
This piece is available in three different limited edition variants, all unframed:
Colour block linocut – original hand painted artwork – 30cmx20cm £475
Giclee prints – 80cm x 53cm £350, 150cm x 100cm £600 (*special order)
These prints display great accuracy and depth of colour, ensuring faithful reproductions of originals with vivid and saturated colours and will outlast a lithographic print by up to six times.
Aluminium substrate prints – 80cm x 53cm £700
These are printed on to an aluminium surface. The finish is a refined matte one lending the brighter portions of the picture a light sheen. The printing technique produces vivid colours and sharp details while the surface creates a unique artistic finish. The substrate board is backed with a black aluminium frame moulding which gives the appearance of a “floating” artwork.
* these pieces are created to order and may take up to 3 weeks to deliver.
Oil and mixed media on canvas . Reflecting is an underlying theme in all my work.

I work in layers – I’m very much a builder and an excavator. Intent overlaps accident imbuing the surface with a sense of history and mystery. I work by building up layers then strip, sand or scrape them away. I like it when earlier traces of paint underneath are exposed.
Carborundum collagraph, wood block monoprint (framed).This is part of a series on heads / portrait images I made on the theme ‘watching you, watching me’. This is a glimpse into a brief encounter, a passing moment viewing and communicating through screens. I built these up in layers of ink paint and printed pattern. A black wood frame complements this piece.
