I am a college trained artist and printmaker from the North West of England (United Kingdom). I have always had an interest in arts and crafts since my early experiences at primary school. Some years after graduation from university with a B.A.(Hons) in graphic design, I developed a renewed interest in printmaking which I had first learnt on a college course at Stockport. Whilst visiting my local art gallery, I picked up a leaflet advertising printmaking workshops in Waterfoot, Lancashire which reignited my interest.
I mainly work with intaglio printing techniques such as etching aquatint and also relief techniques such as reduction linocut. My work focuses on landscapes and seascapes. I love experimenting using different types of printing techniques such as gelli-matt medium printing and cyanotypes.
This website includes a selection of my printmaking, paintings and sketches. I have recently setup an online shop via Redbubble, where you can purchase high quality reproductions of my artwork and gifts. I am currently a member of Stockport Art Guild and the SAA where you can also see some of my art on my member pages..
I also like going on photo-walks especially around local sites of interest. Please visit my blog 'Stockport In Print'which is a printmaking project exploring and capturing the varied architectural landmarks and surrounding locations of my home town Stockport.

Over the last few decades, I have exhibited and sold my printmaking and paintings both locally, nationally and internationally at open exhibitions such as the Manchester Open and Macclesfield Open, arts and craft fair in Manchester and Rossendale and also the Manchester Print Fair.
