I am a fine artist living in North East Lincolnshire. I specialise in printmaking, mainly dry point etching, acid etching and mezzotint. By gaining a focus within printmaking, I have been able to work on a style: a certain character of mark making coupled with a manipulation and fluidity of surface ink.
My work demonstrates a non- representational translation of landscape through mark. The idea is to portray a clear relationship between the core elements: space, line and tone, whilst holding an essential state of balance.
I tend to create work using solely black and white which has naturally made me respond to the landscape symbolically, treating each mark as a formative element. The intention is to create compositions that are uncomplicated and free of unnecessary detail.
From jugs, bowls, mugs, teapots and ornaments, there are some great ideas for gifts beautifully created by local artists.
