Exhibitions

My work is a combination of both the idea and the craft involved within the process of creating a print; they are of equal importance. The craft of preparing the plates is an implicit part of the final image. The techniques exploited are an integral component of the process of creating a print, as well as my response to the subject matter that stimulated that process. Considered selection of shape, colour, form and mark making become paramount and their choice is influenced by contemporary events and historical precedent.

“To make anything interesting, you simply have to look at it long enough”
Gustave Flaubert
