Detailed copper plate etchings and paintings of animals, birds and landscapes. Printmaking demonstration on Sunday 24th.
I have always had a love of drawing and previously worked as an illustrator. I completed an etching course at Oxford Printmakers and have been hooked on that medium for the last twenty years. I love the subtlety of line and detail, alongside the strength of tone that can be achieved. This lends itself perfectly to my style.
More recently I have ventured into acrylic painting, I have really enjoyed the immediacy of working with paint and colour. It’s very exciting to strive to capture an image this way, completely different from the etching process! I have been concentrating on landscapes.
My inspiration comes from both the places I have travelled to and my love of drawing animals and birds. I always try to evoke the atmosphere of the place I am portraying or the character of the animal or bird.
