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


Biography

I studied Printmaking at the Cambridge School of Art and specialised in etching for my MA.  I also work in ceramics specialising in natural wood ash glazes. 

Working in collaboration as Buckmaster & French on our series of Tree Portraits we have been elected Fellows of the Society of Botanical Artists. We will be taking part in London Craft Week at Chelsea Physic Garden in 2020.

 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.
