Having studied BA Fashion and Textile Design at Nottingham Trent, majoring in print, I have recently returned to this discipline in the much more relaxed and expressive area of Fine Art Printmaking.
My prints are inspired by walking and sketching in the beautiful, rolling Hertfordshire countryside and the dramatic landscape of the west coast of Scotland. I am often to be found getting up at 5.30 in the morning so as not to miss what promises to be a beautiful sun rise over the rolling English countryside.
I am inspired by landscape artists such as Kurt Jackson, Barbara Rae and Norman Ackroyd to produce fine art prints which quite often incorporate a variety of print disciplines in an attempt to capture the fragile atmosphere of the ever changing English landscape. I love the richness and depth of multimedia prints and have been known to remove what I thought was a finished print from its frame, to re print, paint or collage another layer on top!
