CV

“In my print work, I endeavour to capture an atmosphere using the play of light and shade, figures and architecture.  I usually work in the discipline of etching and aquatint in which it is possible to show tonal valuesWorking from back-to-front, light to dark and timing the acid to provide the correct jumps in tone is always a test.  The combination of art and craft is what I find so challenging and exciting.”
