My work is inspired by a love of the natural world, and an interest in folklore and fairy tales. The flora and fauna of the English countryside is a recurring theme and I like to draw creatures well known in the landscape and part of English folklore. I’m also slightly obsessed with pattern and decoration!
The process of drawing is important to me, all prints start life as hand drawn imagery in my sketchbook, which are then developed into one of any number of print processes from lino, woodcut, screenprint and gocco. I work from my studio table at home, all work being printed by hand. There is something of the nature of Printmaking that I still find addictive; the anticipation of never quite knowing exactly what the image will be is why I am passionate about this process.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
