I like to use drawing as a thinking as well as a recording tool and move between analytical drawing and seeking an emotional response to what I can see, through fleeting and gestural marks. In printmaking I am fascinated by the same tension between flowing, accidental and incidental marks which come to together to form a coherent image (only sometimes figurative) and the discipline needed to make crisp and clean prints. For me this is the ideal medium to meld together making and thinking. Taking elements from a range of images, drawing and prints and bringing them together in different relationships allows a set of internal dialogues to become visible.
Over the past year I have been looking at photographic printing and using multiple printing plates to form a single image. The larger etching prints are reminiscent of light fall over the estuary or the distant lakes.
Low Fellside runs behind and parallel to Stricklandgate' between All Hallows' Lane and Queens Road. The studio is opposite the Nobles Rest park. NB parking is very tight up here, so best to park at Booths or M&S and walk up
