Why do I make prints? I enjoy the process, the mental challenge and the constant conversation between positive and negative space... It takes time to do. It's physical. It involves looking, drawing, preparation, carving, inking, colour, pressing and everything in between. You can't do it quickly. It's a time-honoured traditional artform.  It takes discipline, care, planning and sometimes a lot of repetition; but when it throws up wonderful and sometimes unexpected results and you gasp at what you've made, it's absolutely all worth it.


Printmaking transcends many genres and has had its place throughout history in many forms. It has fuelled revolutions, informed readers, communicated ideas; and in its earliest form, represented thought to enable understanding. It can be large-scale or small-scale; mass-produced or unique... Everyone can make their mark...
