Welcome

What’s my site about?

I’m a printmaker with a studio near Penzance currently studying for a Masters in Printmaking at Plymouth College of Art and it’s great to have the chance to do the MA and make use of the extensive facilities and mix with artists of different disciplines.

My work is about experimenting with colour, pattern and texture using different printmaking matrices to come up with original solutions based on the natural world and I enjoy combining the digital with the hand-pulled, for example by using a digital collage as the basis for a photo-polymer etching.  I’m currently working on a set of monoprints based on the landscape of Penwith and 20+ prints are on show at the Ironbridge Fine Arts gallery, Shropshire.

I took part in ‘Open Studios Cornwall’ in May and will be participating next year and I’ve recently joined ‘The Art of Cornwall’ online marketplace where you can view and purchase some of my prints:

If you’re interested in coming to the studio to see my work – it’s at Tremethick Cross, 3 miles from Penzance – then please just email me first to arrange a date and time; I’m happy to have visitors.
