Biography and Events

I have been working as a linocut artist for over seven years now, after a 30 year career in the textiles and clothing industry. Following a redundancy in 2016, I decided to go full time as an artist, so here I am! Making prints, participating in many fairs and exhibitions, and delivering workshops in my studio and with community groups.

My main focus is creating 'reduction' linocut prints, this is the method I have used for nearly all my work. This is where you use only one block and carve away more lino with each layer to create the image. It can be a bit nerve wracking as you have to do the whole edition at the same time, and you can't go back, so planning and preparation is key.

2020:  As all fairs and in-person events have been cancelled for this year at least, I will be showcasing all new work, and any online fairs on this website and also on Instagram and Facebook
