Cards and Ballads from the Common Press

Since school, I've been interested in printmaking and especially the lino and woodcut techniques. Although life has taken me in many different directions, I have never lost my love for this art form. My inspiration is the early modern era : Tudors, Stuarts and the Baroque. But rather than looking to the high art of Sun Kings and palaces, I choose the everyday, ephemeral and folk life of the streets, cottages and fields as the well spring of my art. Almanacs, tavern games, ballads, are my sources and the images I make, I hope, will evoke a feeling for and collective memory of those far off days where our ancestors lived, so different and yet so similar to our own lives.
