I am now open. Thanks to all of my customers for supporting me in 2020 and I hope 2021 be a happier year for all.
I am an artist based in York, who specialises in printmaking, mainly Linocuts which are all totally handmade. I have a degree in Fine Art, take part in many art shows and I also exhibit my work in galleries.
I usually start with a photograph that I have taken, from this I draw out a design which I then transfer onto a vinyl sheet. I used to use real Lino but vinyl produces better results in my view. It also lasts longer. I carve out my design with Lino cutting tools. I then ink up this plate and place paper over the top. I then pass this through my Hawthorn etching press which is housed in my studio.
Hawthorn Printmaking Supplies is a local business specialising in printing products. I use their fantastic Stay Open Ink which is oil based. I then use Brusho which is a water based pigment to hand colour. This is one method of achieving colour and if I use a different process, I take care to explain this. I believe is sharing my methods with those who are interested in how I make my work.
My prints are all limited editions and all are numbered and signed. The prints vary slightly as they are hand made so they are all unique!
My favoured image size is 30 X 20 cm but the paper size is larger as there is a white border of approximately 5 cm around each side of the image to enable you to frame the image as you wish. I print onto top quality acid free paper.
When I was in Tuscany, I noticed a field of Sunflowers which seemed to stretch for miles. It was a very striking scene and so I took photographs and designed this image from those.
