About My Work

My prints are made using a variety of traditional and digital printing techniques.

The act of making is a fundamental, indeed primary, human activity. Artistic endeavour as part of that activity functions to interpret, illuminate and transform the world we live in.

I work with steel and aluminium plates to create highly textured images. I consider this way of creating an image a process of construction. I like to think of it as “building” the plate.  In this sense there is a sculptural aspect to my work. At other times the textured carborundum and etching approximates the characteristics of brush strokes in a painting.
