About

I just wanted to decorate my envelopes...

My love of printmaking started with very humble beginnings. Since childhood I have loved letter writing, and it is through this medium that I came to carving my own stamps. I had long since decorated my letters and envelopes with doodles and shop bought rubber stamps, and when I came across a rubber stamp carving kit I decided to buy it and give it a go. I’ve never looked back since.

I carved that first stamp in 1990, and the more I carve, the more my printmaking practice develops. I now create detailed prints of landscapes and architecture that are firmly in the art category. Whenever I go out on walks, I am always on the lookout for a new subject to carve, sketchbook and camera at the ready. I live in a village in the north east of England, right on the edge of the North Pennines mountain range and where there are plenty of wooded areas. The local scenery shapes my artwork, my house is surrounded by trees, so they do play a major part in my artwork.

Creating lino prints is a form of meditation to me. When I carve I lose track of time and my mind wanders. I've often had customers say that they can see hidden words and symbols in my artwork, which I think comes from the meditative state as I work.

I work in a home studio, so I like to make sure that I keep my local environment safe. I use water soluble inks, which are specifically designed to go down the drain. The paper that I use is acid free and chlorine free and is of archival quality.

I am a printmaker, specialising in relief blockprints of architecture, nature, landscapes and street furniture. I hand-carve the images out of a soft-block material, and print them by hand using water-based blockprinting inks. Please see my profile for full details on the carving and printing process.
