This section of the website is to let you know what I am up to, what is inspiring me and about forthcoming exhibitions. It is very much in first draft stage.

New Work

Posted: Oct-19-2018

This is my latest print. The first featuring my dog Freddie. It is the first multi plate lino cut I have done for a while. I made it stupidly complicated using five different colour plates, two of which have more than one colour applied to them. I have an idea for another but next time I will simplify it. It was fun anyway. I have done a number of other prints since the ones below. Sorry, I have been a bit lazy adding them to this site.

Partly to prepare for a course I am leading titled ‘painterly lino-cuts’ at Gainsborough’s House, I have made the prints below. The textures were created by using a combination of caustic soda to etch the surfaceof the lino and by applying the ink in several thin layers, sometimes using small rollers.

It is also possible to use wax as a resist and then applying the caustic soda. The print below of Needham Lakes in Mid Suffolk was created in this way. Rather than using a reduction technique as I usually do and did with the prints above. This print is made using two seperate plates of lino and inking one up with a light grey and the other with dark grey.


The prints below were made using dry-point card or mount board that was prepared with a coat of PVA glue and water.

Future exhibitions

Some of my more recent work is hanging at the Jessica Muir gallery in Long Melford and I also have some work at the Aubrey Gallery in Great Dunmow.

I will be exhibiting with 12PM at the Frame worshop and Gallery in Ipswich from 31 October to the 1 December 2018. I have my first solo show for a while at the Old Fire Engine House in Ely in April and May 2019.
