On Etsy since 2018

Fine Art Printmaker based in Derby. Loving the traditional processes involved in creating handmade, unique prints.

Welcome to my Etsy shop.

I am a practicing artist and teacher working in the East Midlands. I have been driven to create for as long as I can remember and studied Fine art at University. I have been incredibly grateful that I have been able to use my knowledge to teach others in secondary school and further education settings for over 10 years and this remains a source of joy for me.

In 2016 I was diagnosed with blood cancer, fortunately I had a donor stem cell transplant that saved my life and I knew that I needed to create and share my work. While recovering from the treatment, I set up this Etsy shop, and began to exhibit. I now have work in a few commercial galleries and am a regular exhibitor at many open studios, print and art fairs across the midlands. I can’t describe the joy it brings to be able so share work in this way. I hope every piece that has found a home brings joy, but also peace and reflection at times when it is needed.

The human form has always fascinated me, I love the discipline of life drawing and this is a key part of the work.
I seek to explore the fragility and instability of the human experience juxtaposed against the desire for power and control; making the invisible inner world of our thoughts and physical feelings visible through figurative and abstract compositions. I am keen to show the growth and opportunity that can come from significant events that are beyond our control.

I use a range of media to explore these concepts, however the process of printmaking has remained a constant source of fascination for me. I relish the preparation of the plates and the patience involved in waiting to see the final outcome. There is also an element of unpredictability inherently attached to it; which excites me.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
