"Printmaking is addictive, it gets under your skin."

I am a Cumbrian printmaker who principally makes images about buildings, architecture and structures both within the landscape and on the coast. I highlight architectural details in the urban environment and celebrate manmade incursions in the rural environment. All my work starts with a real place, which I alter, abstract and exaggerate in a drawing. This drawing becomes my reference image to make prints. I mainly make prints using the aquatint etching technique. In these works I etch strong, controlled lines and add texture and tone by applying a rough aquatint, leaving in many of the scratches and marks which are picked up by the process.
