I am a Leeds-based printmaker working mainly in relief, creating lino and wood blocks which I print individually on my vintage cast-iron book press. I enjoy the very tactile and deliberate process of carving, inking and pressing onto paper. No two block prints are ever fully alike – I find this element of surprise adds to each finished print. Sometimes I will hand-tint the printed image with watercolour or inks. I’m drawn to nature – animal and plant life and the sea.
You can purchase my work at The Craft House in Saltaire and in Nautical and Nice in the Corn Exchange in Leeds, including a Leeds Print which they stock exclusively.
I hope you enjoy looking at my work and find something you like – thank you for your interest.
