About

After nearly 30 years working as a graphic designer and branding consultant, in 2016 I stopped crafting images for other people and started making them for myself.  Drawing on a lifetime of taking photographs whilst living in Edinburgh, London and the south of France, I began with solar plate etching.  Recently I have expanded my skills to include screen printing.

Having last attended life drawing at art college in Edinburgh in the 1980s, I have also returned to that.  And I love it.  For the moment I'm not sure how that will effect my printmaking.  But in the future, I intend to evolve from just purely photograph-based image making to something more gestural.  Lithography, monoprinting, photogravure and drypoint are all on my radar, so watch this space!
