A chance encounter with a book of ‘Hiroshige’s 53 stages of the Tokaido’ woodcut prints, whilst studying Illustration at Leicester Polytechnic, seduced me into the world of relief print from which I’ve never escaped. I’ve been trying to catch the delicate sensibilities of seasonal weather and the dramatic natural compositions of Japanese prints ever since. In 2001 I moved to Wales to concentrate on becoming a better landscape print maker. I have now been working with lino for over twenty five years and have worked, studied and exhibited, widely across the UK as well as Hong Kong, China and Australia
