I am a UK based printmaker specialising in lino.
After obtaining a degree in Textile Design at Central Saint Martin's School of Art in London back in the early 80s, I worked freelance in both textile and graphic design. Subsequently, I did a 16 year long stint as an Art Teacher in UK secondary schools before "retiring" in 2018 to become a full-time Printmaker!
My inspiration and ideas tend to come mainly from nature and the living world, and I also have a love of 20th Century Art and Design (in particular, the Arts & Crafts Movement, Art Deco and the work of artists such as Henry Moore).
I enjoy making strong, bold lines and marks in my artwork, and find lino printing is the perfect medium for achieving this.
