My work occurs mainly as a direct response to the environment ~ in particular the colour, patterns,textures and sensual linear shapes of the landscape. I paint in most mediums, though predominately oil and acrylic with a mix of pastels and other mixed media. The printmaking involves etching, usually on zinc plate in order to produce a series of handcoloured intaglio mono-prints and the production of mostly large collagraphic mono-prints often worked over with pastel and  paint.
