I’m an artist who makes prints that are inspired by nature and literature, I also make books which I think of as three dimensional prints. I seek to capture the essence of a subject in its simplest form, often carving directly into the wood and drawing as I carve. I have always been particularly interested in printmaking by hand and I consider that that is the main drive and thread which connects all my work. I have explored many methods of printmaking from potato to digital, but woodcut and collage are my preferred medium.
