Paintings & Prints
I have always made paintings, but moved away from this area while I was studying, instead choosing printmaking as my minor subject. It was fairly recently that I rediscovered my love of making images. Over the past 3 years I have been lucky enough to sell a number of my prints and paintings including mixed media work and have been commissioned to make work for a number of clients.
Attending workshops has helped me to re-engage with printmaking techniques, collagraphy is a particular favourite of mine, maybe due to the fact that the printing plates are very sculptural in the making and in their appearance.
As with everything that I make, I am continually on the look out for new challenges and different mediums to try out. One of the most challenging mediums that I have explored recently has been egg tempera, take a look at my miniature paintings of birds and the ornately framed paintings of hawks and let me know what you think.
