The work you’ll see here is a range of traditional fine art printing techniques – drypoint, mezzotint, lino cut, screenprints, monotype and monoprint.
The physicality of the act of creating a drypoint is something I adore and is a result of my life-long love of drawing. Drypoints are created by drawing directly into a metal plate with a sharp point. The resulting 'burr’ holds ink to give the printed line a tell-tale soft fuzziness. I find the act of carving into lino very therapeutic – even with the accompanying arm ache.The anticipation and trepidation on peeling back the paper to see what the first new print is like is addictive and something I don’t ever envisage will lose its appeal.
Here are a few examples of my work.
