I create abstract monochrome prints that are stark, intimate and expressive.
By combining drawing with drypoint etching and collagraph, I develop the printing plate, instinctively reacting to marks as they are made. The process retains a spontaneity and fluidity whilst exploiting the technical discipline of printmaking.
The layering of abstract mark making gives the prints a subtlety and depth which accentuates their physical presence. The sequence and rhythm of lines creates the illusion of floating between, or passing through, veils of thin air.
Most of my prints are produced as small limited editions but each print is unique due to the inking up process. This introduces subtle differences and qualities to each image.
