Monotypes & Collagraphs
My monoprints evolve from a variety of themes which I explore with drawing and painting techniques.
Realistic or abstract, these prints respond in a quicker more spontaneous way and produce unique images
Inspiration for my collagraphs comes from the countryside around me in Devon and Cornwall,
in terms of both land and sea.
My semi-abstract images are a response to the shapes, patterns, textures and colours in nature.
Drawings & Drypoints
My figurative drawings focus on natural objects and scenes, focussing on representation and detail.
The abstract images also feature great detail, but often zoom in on texture or shape and
involve use of repetition.
Drypoints are a beautiful way to develop and
expand my drawing techniques.
They allow me to experiment with mark making using figurative imagery.
Linocut offers an opportunity to experiment with the mark making of fine cuts. Combined with flat colour inking, the finished result is of contrast to the more painterly style of monotypes and collagraphs.
Initial work has focussed on flora.
