I love to explore and share what I see in the beautiful country in which we live, and to stir memories and emotions from my artwork. I take photographs everywhere, whether at home, walking in the countryside or even exploring a city. My journey with colour and texture carries on with my linocuts, stylising the scenes to create the desired mood.
In my work as a print creator, I use different forms of printing, imparting my photographic images onto different media to bring them to life. I enjoy how there are many choices and options to make each piece of work unique. An alternative print method is using reduction linocut printing, which reveals its image through each layer. Stylistic decisions have to be made before each stage and I like using the logical side of my brain to construct the scene, capturing the light, texture and colours.
