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: Nov-15-2021

These are some of my latest prints. The first featuring my dog Freddie. They are the first multi plate lino cuts I have done for a while. I made the one of Freddie with his ball stupidly complicated using five different colour plates, two of which have more than one colour applied to them. The one next to it is of my wife Sue and Freddie having an afternoon doze. The third print is of the three of us having breakfast at Landguard Point in Felixstowe.

The print below was made a couple of years ago but I added it to this post because all four of these prints are published in Mascot Media’s new book ‘Paw Prints’. If you love dogs you will love this book.

I have not made many prints since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic but here is one. It is a four colour relief print using wood and MDF blocks. It is of Cromer pier.

I have been spending some time playing with making crafts and printing fabrics to entertain myself and cheer myself up. Here are some examples.

 

I am currently working on some new wood block prints. I will upload them when I can.

    

These are two of the woodcuts I have been working on. One of Freddie, that I did just for fun as a reduction print and a large decorative panel (about 1m high by 35cm). I am working towards making three similar panels in colour, using three or four colour printing blocks for each. The black and white one took ages so this is a long term project. I quite like it in black and white though, so I am keeping my options open.

Several months later, I have finally completed the triptych in colour. 

   

 

Future exhibitions

Posted: May-10-2021

I have no exhibitions planned this year. However, I am taking part in Suffolk Open Studios. Unfortunately, there is a mistake in the directory and it says I am closed on the weekend I am open and Open on all the weekends I am closed. I am open on the third weekend in June and that is the 18 and 19 June 2022. I hope to see you then.
