the east wind blows

This ancient oak fighting to survive the storm is synonymous with our worldly struggles. Printed on handmade Spanish paper, the windblown effect is created by dragging the ink across the plate. This does mean that each print is unique and very atmospheric.

Statement

The subject matter of my work is the landscape that I encounter and the emotional response that it generates.  Time and place are not important to me but I hope to create a sense of nostalgia and memory revisited.

Biography

I studied Printmaking at the Cambridge School of Art and specialised in etching for my MA.

I have been collaborating with Janet French on the Tree Portrait project which continues to grow and at the same time I have continued with my own work.

Much time is also taken up with demonstrating, teaching and residencies.  I did a residency  at Cill Railaig in Ireland, have demonstrated at Art in Action in Oxford and I teach an annual course at Gainsborough's House.  I took part in the BBC documentary about the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and also talked about printmaking on BBC radio Suffolk.
