I am a full time printmaker working from my home studio near Holmfirth in Yorkshire. I exhibit regularly in the UK and Europe and sell my work all over the world, through my shop Little Print Press. Last year I won the NEW LIGHT ART PRINTMAKING PRIZE, judged by Norman Ackroyd RA.CBE. My work has been featured in Vogue, Country Living, 25 Beautiful Homes, House and Gardens magazines, amongst others. It can even be found on the Set of Mad Men' and other television sets in the USA.

Chance & Seam, 71 x 71cm, handmade and hand drawn screenprints
on Fabriano Rosaspina, 2018, editions of 15 £235
These handmade screenprints are from a recent body of work (June - July 2018) and have a textured appearance which echoes a woodcut print. I love to add textures using mark-making when drawing my images prior to hand printing them, to add interest and also to give them a feel of nature and the natural world. The materials I use give the work a chalky quality. The paper is heavyweight, slightly off white and with deckles to all edges. These prints are part of a series, and are available to buy. I'll be adding new ones soon too.
