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.

I'm working on new ideas for prints all the time, but with the running of my shop 'Little Print Press' on Etsy I rarely have time to make the work I dream about! I have put aside the next three weeks and will be dedicating it to some pieces I would like to submit for the RA summer show next year, that's if they go well of course! Last week I made some new editions specifically for my shop. See below. 'Eight Along' on the left is £76 and the smaller screenprints 'Yellow Line II' & 'Turn II' are £45 each
I am extremely pleased to have been selected for this very prestigious show with some exceptional artists. In 2015 I won the printmakers prize and this time it went to the very talented Neil Bousfield.
The exhibition has just started at the spectacular Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle. In March is travels to Huddersfield Art Gallery and moves in June to The Bankside Gallery in London. The last stop - October 2018 - Jan 2019 is at the Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery in Carlise.
Lots of my work, including new prints are for sale at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea. The Private View is today and then Thursday - Sunday. I'm on stand K1 with the Columbia Road Gallery. Please do pop in if you get the chance, there's so much on show.
