I am a printmaker and co-founder of Double Elephant Print Workshop where I have been one of the directors since 1997. Member of Devon Guild of Craftsmen where my prints are constantly available and exhibited.
My practice is inspired by bugs, hedgerows, “weeds” and how we and the organisms we live alongside interact and shape the environment. I use a wide range of printmaking techniques – traditional and innovative, often creating complex one-off prints using mainly intaglio processes with mono print techniques, using common plants foraged from hedgerows or which I cultivate for the purpose. I make my printmaking as environmentally friendly and sustainable as I can.
Much of my practice involves studies of Devon hedgerows; projects looking at the importance of urban bees; celebration of our most rare farm bird being brought back from the brink of extinction; ongoing observations of local weeds/wild flowers and recently examining Dartmoor blanket bogs.
