Contemporary etchings and mezzotint engravings where tradition and discipline are echoed in the japonesque essence of the pieces, shaping the viewing experience by inviting you to look a little closer and consider for a little longer.

studies

Studies underpin my key works; they’re not specific plans or drawings from life but development pieces which express the evolution of my ideas and practice. These are often more involved than sketchbook work and tend to be experimental but they have a finished quality to them.

a little bit of balance

The work created from what I class as ‘balancing practice’ is made so as to maintain movement in my drawing practice. The labour and time intensive activity involved in creating the key pieces needs to be balanced with fluid mark-making, so on a fairly regular basis I go through exercises to freshen activity.

A good way to get original art on your walls is to buy sketchbook pieces; they’re good talking points especially if you can reflect on the key works which follow. Mine  are available to purchase as a means to foster a different attitude about acquiring original work for our spaces, so, at £10 each(signed + unframed) it becomes a simpler decision to seek out something different and easier to establish a connection with the artist. They often have a lot of energy in them and  can benefit from cropping and framing, so, once they’ve done the job I need them to do for me then they’re available for sale. Please contact me if you require further information on size and medium.
