About the artist

Etchings, prints and decorative ceramics.

I live in Hurst Green and have been Printmaking and producing Studio Pottery on and off for more than 20 years.

My printmaking is inspired by nature and the coast and consists mostly of etchings on zinc or copper plates, although I do utilise relief, drypoint and monoprint techniques as well as lino printing.


Each ‘plate’ is inked by hand and normally forms a part of a small edition of about twenty prints. The images are often available as Greetings Cards.

The individual pieces of pottery tend to be for domestic use and individual/unique. The decorative patters and glaze colours adopted may be similar over several pieces.
