I am a painter and printmaker. When printmaking I mainly produce images in colour through single or multi-plate etching. Etching is a medium of opposites combining a robust, uncompromising quality with delicacy in both the mark-making and the intensity or sensitivity of colour it makes possible. Although I find it links naturally to painting, it has its own voice which allows a very particular kind of image making. All my work is about journeys, often internal and hidden, and all my paintings and prints find a way to celebrate being human and being alive in a challenging but rich world.
