My work as printmaker tries to extract the drama from scenes, be it in landscapes or in the interaction between figures. I also try to express the decorative qualities that I find in still life objects. Printmaking and particularly etching brings a particular sharpness and contrast that enables me to achieve this.The ideas come from landscapes, cityscapes and still life of objects. The work begins through drawings and photographs taken at the scene from which I construct prints - mostly as etchings and more recently in lino cuts and wood cuts. at the Artichoke Print Workshop in South London. www.artichokeprintmaking.com
