I like to explore the countryside and coast around Colchester and this has been the inspiration for my work.  Dereliction is my favourite subject closely followed by life drawing.  Drawing has always been central to my artistic practice.  I enjoy the process of developing drawings into prints, namely etchings, collographs, linocuts or monoprints.  The process of making plates can be time consuming but unexpected surprises can happen to change the basic image when it has undergone all the  processes of making and printing plates.  I have exhibited regularly with the Art Society as well as local exhibitions in the Essex/Suffolk area.
