Drawing and observation is at the heart of my practice, and it is often an unexpected transitory glimpse that stimulates a piece of work. The continual cycles of change inspire much of my work, resulting in recent series of prints about the aging process, migration and human relationships. I love to be in my studio, or walking in the chestnut woods, where I watch the daily transformations in the landscape and find space for ideas to emerge away from the pressures and complexities of daily life. My practice of Tʼai Chi, with its focus on being connected to the natural rhythms of nature underpins my art work.
I work with a range of printmaking processes, including etching, collagraph, drypoint, monoprint and woodcut, choosing whichever medium best expresses the image I am trying to convey. I make small editions, printing them myself on my Littlejohn etching press.
