I have been interested in printmaking for many years, and my practice has broadened with completion of a printmaking module with the Open College of the Arts. I admire the pioneering printmakers of the interwar years, including the stylised work of Cyril Power and Leonard Beaumont, and love the early underground and travel  posters. I enjoy the quality and uniqueness of the printed image and take inspiration from the urban and natural landscapes around me. I prefer to work with lino, and also experiment with combined techniques using monoprint, collagraph and chine colle.
