This year I am exhibiting again in the lovely church at North Moreton, near Didcot, along with four other artists. The show will include: original prints (etchings, woodcuts, collagraphs and screen prints) paintings, textiles, ceramics, woodturning and rocking horses - something for everyone! The work is extremely varied, but a common theme for all the artists is the inspiration provided by the world around us, and especially the natural environment. We'll also be selling greetings cards, and serving refreshments (tea, coffee, delicious homemade cookies and cakes).
I am principally a printmaker, a demanding and inspiring discipline which I have now been practicing for thirty years. I work mostly with etching and collagraph, sometimes combining the two in one image. I draw inspiration from my surroundings, especially the natural world and the landscape, experienced at first hand as a keen walker.
In addition to printmaking, I enjoy drawing, and painting, working mostly in mixed media including soft pastel, oil pastel, watercolour, and collage.
A more recent development is a fascination with ceramics, where I like to produce sculptural hand built vessels in stoneware.
