ARTIST INFO

I am a printmaker who specialises in images of domestic and wild animals. My etchings are sparse and open, all the attention focused on the subject. I try to convey the character and nature of the creatures I draw in the pose and expression of my subject. My images are quite empty, I find inspiration in Japanese printmaking and brush painting. I like the idea of the space being as important as the marks I make.

Watching garden birds in lockdown. Their life hasn’t changed as ours has in the last year and it’s good to see some things going on as usual!
