Printmaking

From the first etching I made in 1965 I have been intrigued and fascinated by printmaking of all kinds and have used most forms, intaglio, wood cut and wood engraving, lino cut, silk screen and lithography. More recently, photo etching and now solar etching.

 

1965-1967

City and Guilds School of Art, Kennington, London

Foundation + 1st Year Painting & Printmaking.

 

1976-1979

City and Guilds School of Art, Kennington, London

Diploma in Fine Art Graphics.

 

During the 80s and 90s

I principally sold my work at Makers Markets and Art Fairs. I had regular stalls at St Martin in the Fields, St James Market in Piccadilly, Camden Lock and the Apple Market in Convent Garden. I have almost always had at least one solo exhibition a year.

 

2005 onwards

I started to work with photographs, using photo etching, combined with more traditional printmaking and drawing methods, as my medium. I am now beginning to move into making more mono prints and collages, using the above methods, combining with digital printing and have started to use solar etching and water based inks.

 

I have been using as my subject the changing face of London, the demolition of buildings and the rebuilding of new, the movement of people through the city and the oddities of detail and reflection and strange corners that occur in a large city.

 

I now take part in Pullens Open Studios at Clement Yard in Kennington twice a year in June and December. I still try to have at least I solo exhibition a year and am now a member of the Southbank Printmakers in whose Gallery I am able to have work on display.
