Vast open moorland. Steep rocky edges look down onto deep sweeping valleys. Dark patches of tree belt, stone walls and hedges fragment the land. The landscape of The Peak District, the place that inspires me.

I make prints and produce hand-built ceramics in my studio on the edge of the Derbyshire Peak District.

As a Printmaker, I have always been drawn towards more direct methods of working. I am constantly developing my practice by experimenting with combining print techniques. I mostly work with Screenprint, Monoprint/Monotype and Collage. As a result, my prints are seldom editions. I prefer to work intuitively, building layers of colour, texture and line.
