My starting point is observation of the natural world, using drawing and photography to develop ideas for prints. Recurring themes are plants and natural forms, such as fossils, shells and birds’ nests. I often combine images with pattern and text. Since acquiring my own intaglio press, I work mainly in etching and photo etching. Prints are made in small editions, (never more than 25) and Artist Proofs are limited to 5, often in different colourways.
