Personal profile

Have been the technical instructor in printmaking since 1990 here at De Montfort University. My own artwork is of a topological and personal nature, and encompasses many traditional techniques in printmaking.

I have an enthusiasm for the urban environment, cityscapes and architecture and experiences of these are worked into image form, with the intention of reflecting my memories and feelings I associate with the spaces. It involves many components: some of a topographical nature, others are more concerned with monumentalism, but all of my work explores pattern, tone, historical context, artistic references and social comment and over the years my work has evolved and become more accomplished.

“I like to invite the viewer into the work and explore. To take a journey through the many visual layers involved and to discover or reveal something of the moment I experienced, or that they may have.”
