July Open Studios
I love to layer hand carved lino blocks onto silkscreen prints, sometimes I add watercolours to diffuse the hard edges and collage with found or my own printed papers. I am fascinated by the colours, patterns and textures that are revealed and concealed among the layers.
Each block is pressed by hand, without a press, often creating perfect imperfections.
Inspiration comes from the garden which surrounds me and its cacophony of colours, lines, and shapes which I try to replicate in my prints.
My other passion is road cycling so occasionally flowers are replaced by bicycle cogs and gears!
