About me:

I work with the monoprint medium because it encourages expressive and painterly mark making. I draw and paint directly onto the plate surface with oil based inks, using brushes, sticks, rags and any implements to hand gradually building a textured surface. I drew inspiration from working with biologists at the Lancaster Environment Centre and was given access to laser imaging facilities which inspired me to make work based on microscopic plant structures. I continue to be experimental in my use of processes, drawing on experience of environment and place and sketching directly from nature.

I have exhibited widely: Printfest, Ulverston, Royal West of England Academy, Sefton Open, Liverpool, University of Central Lancashire, Atrium Gallery, Lancaster university, John Moores School of Art and Design, Liverpool.
