I was born in Glasgow in 1944 and visited most points between Paisley and Shanghai before the age of 5. In 1997 I retired after over 30 years working in Education. For 13 years I lived in Cumbria where I took up etching and exhibited in local Galleries including a one man show at Abbot Hall in Kendal. After moving to Dover, I continued to make prints and since retirement have begun to exhibit again. I returned to Cumbria in 2003 and have exhibited widely within the county.I now mainly work with aquatint sometimes combined with etching in which my youthful flirtation with abstraction informs my reaction to landscape. I produce small editions of up to 20. Each print is made by hand and so is unique. It is the limitations and difficulties of printmaking which allow me to find the essential elements in the image. My work is mainly inspired by landscape and acknowledges the influence of the abstract in art while retaining a response to the visual stimulus of the world around us.
