Artist Statement

The creation of something is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity.
The creative mind plays with objects it loves.
Carl Jung


I work intuitively which means there is always an element of experimentation. By working with the most simple and direct materials that are and have been commonly used in traditional printmaking methods I explore shape and colour to arrive at strong and lucid images. Taking risks whilst printing is part of a playfulness that I consider to be an important element of my work.
