I am a printmaker based in Newcastle upon Tyne. I have been printmaking for the last 20 years, though with a fallow period in the middle when I was bringing up children.
I have a studio at home, where I do most of my work and print some woodcuts by hand. These tend to be the ones in which the wood is warped or is not even enough to print using a press. I am a member of Northern Print, and use the studio for printing editions which are suitable for printing on a press. Most of my smaller work (around 12” square and smaller) is printed on an Albion Press.
I will be teaching a one-day workshop on Woodcut and Chine Collé at Northern Print on Friday 13th June 2014. Please see their website for further details and if you wish to book a place. The autumn programme of classes at Northern Print is currently being drawn up and I will be teaching a further 3 classes before the end of the year.
