My work reflects my interest in the human form and human relationships. Some pieces are based on poems and literature, some are directly from observation and imagination. Everything is underpinned by drawing from nature and figure studies. There is usually a narrative element, I aim to convey a feeling or atmosphere and am happy to let the viewer fill in the details. Over the last two years I have shifted from making (coloured) combinations of etching and wood cut to making monochrome etchings and colour wood cuts.
