‘I create colourful works on paper, drawings and prints, for which I use the intaglio press. I sometimes combine this with collagraph. For a more painterly, free approach, I create layers of painting, passed through the press to make unique monotypes.

My inspiration is drawn from the 13th Century love poems of Ibn ‘Arabi, landscapes of longing and the wild birds and animals of wide open spaces. Images are encountered, observed or imagined. My drawings, on the other hand, are usually based on the human figure, in mixed media of ink and charcoal and conté crayon.’
