In May this year all of my prints can be seen and bought at my own venue during Artweeks. There will also be a selection of my artwork on display and for sale at at Blackwell's Art and Poster Shop, 27 Broad St, Oxford OX1 3BS.
I'm a self-taught printmaker and work from my kitchen table in Oxford. As an artist I love creating bold, colourful and unique linoprints. When printmaking I create images by hand-pressing paper onto an inked lino block and I'm attracted to the sometimes imperfect but delightful nature of this method of printing - to me this is the essence of creativity.
I take inspiration from the Oxfordshire countryside and beyond, and in most of my images include traditional stories, fairy tales and beliefs about animals that people have created to make sense of the world around them. I want to remember the links we have with nature, and show the importance of animals to us now.
