A print-creator of the everyday world around me. Enjoying the combination of photography, linocut and handmade books.
I take photographs everywhere, whether at home, walking in the countryside or even exploring a city. Landscapes are a constant draw to me, as are structures, details, and ever-changing light and shadow. My linocuts are based on my own photographs and bring the textures and shapes into a different type of print, allowing me to get my hands dirty. After an intensive and enjoyable course in bookbinding I was inspired to use my photographs as book covers, to integrate my love of patterned papers and create handmade books.
Printing, bookbinding and 'light' photography will be demonstrated – just say if you want to see anything in particular and if you'd like to have a go!
