Thank you for taking the time to look at my website I make limited edition prints from a small studio in South London.

 

Each print is signed and numbered, and printed on high quality Somerset paper. They are supplied wrapped in film on a board to keep them safe until they are ready to frame.

 

 

A little bit about me

I first studied art at Central St Martins and gained a BA in illustration. I worked as an illustrator before I studied fine art printmaking and gained an MA at Camberwell School of Art.

 

I have since become a member of Greenwich Printmakers Gallery in Greenwich.

Galleries showing my work including the following;


The Contemporary Print Show at the Barbican
Original Print Exhibition at the Bankside Gallery.
Leeds City Art Gallery

Lingwood Samuel Gallery Godalming
The Royal West of England Academy
The Affordable Art Fair 
Morley Gallery
National Theatre
Fountain Gallery

The Barbican Art Library

The Watts Gallery 

 

My awards include the John Purcell Paper Price, the Artichoke Award for Outstanding Student, Runner up for the Clifford Chance Price and Contemporary Print Show Award Winner.

 

My first prints were mainly etchings producing very free and fluid images through a technique called sugar lift. I have been experimenting more recently with a combination of dry points and collagraphs. This technique gives my prints a dark, haunting quality.

I am fascinated by humour in the world around me and relationships between people. My images are often comical with a deeper darkness to them. I think of them as exorcising my demons.
