Hi

I hope you enjoy viewing my art.

Heres a selection of pictures to help describe the various mediums I use and also give a sense of how living on the beautiful Lands End Peninsula of Cornwall inspires me as an Artist

Drypoint etching

Drypoint etching

Drypoint is an intaglio method of printmaking where the drawing is scraped into a printmaking plate, covered with ink, wiped and run through an etching press. The pressure of the press pushes the ink from the incised lines onto the paper producing lovely velvety lines. You can see the indentation of the plate on the paper.

Mounts Bay is another of my favourite sketching trips. I enjoy trying to capture a little of what its like to live and holiday in this beautiful part of the world.
