As a professional artist printmaker, I feel very privileged to be able to make a living from something I love doing.
I don't set out to produce work on a specific subject, but my work tends to reflect social commentary - the cities we live and work in, the whole work and wealth generating ethic and human nature. My ideas also convey my concern for the environment.
The work I do is a combination of visual communication and personal expression. I use humour/satire to convey my ideas as this is what comes naturally but it is also an effective way to deliver an often difficult message.
I enjoy the challenge and craftsmanship involved in the mezzotint engraving technique and this is what I was originally recognised for. However, following a cycling accident which restricted how much physical labour I can use to prepare a copper plate - I now use the etching technique and have recently started experimenting with lino-cutting.
