my influence is printmaking, predominantly etching, though i work in various mediums. Such as, inks and painting as well as various print form including digital imagery from photographs. I am experimental in my approach and its often an interesting challenge to differentiate between my various mediums. I use eco friendly inks and paints as much as possible using some of my own hand made inks from plants in my work – my artwork has a detailed etherial quality reminiscent of faery tale illustrations and an essence of artwork from the early 19th century – I invite the viewer to connect on a deep level with nature, the art piece and in tern themselves.
The digital works are hand finished with gold or silver leaf to reflect the light as you walk around the room.
