About my prints
I use a variety of techniques including collagraph, drypoint, etching, monotypes, chine-collé, lino & vinyl-cut printing and I print off aluminium, mount-board, acetate, plaster and wood substrates. I’ve also been experimenting with vitreographs: sandblasting designs onto glass plates.
My prints are produced on my Rollaco press and I only use archival-quality papers, tissues and inks. My preferred papers are by Hahnemuhle and Fabriano, though I use a variety of beautiful mould-made cotton rag papers as dictated by the project.
I only produce hand-pulled prints in small editions of 3 or 5. Some prints are one-offs, marked ‘UP’ for Unique Print. These are often embellished, often with metal leaf, and have hand-painted detail, are likely to have heavily embossed areas and be made on heavyweight papers, often with overlays.
