Jamie is a Freelance Curator and Printmaker in Cumbria. His artwork is principally concerned with manmade structures: houses, buildings, townscapes and structures in the landscape and on the coast. For Jamie all printmaking comes from drawing. He enjoys taking his love of line drawing and transforming it through the magic of the aquatint etching process. He values etching for the quality of line it can produce, its depth of texture and for the random marks picked up by the process which he often chooses to preserve. Jamie has recently extended his use of etching to create unique ‘Etching Plate Jewellery’.
