I studied Contemporary Fine Art at University and during that time fell in love with printmaking. I love how much texture you can get from different printing techniques and the unpredictable nature of the process that you can never fully control.
Since moving back to Birmingham I have been part of the Birmingham Printmakers taking inspiration from nature, wildlife and the world around me.
My main printing techniques are Collograph, Lino-cuts & Wood-cuts. I am also a self-employed photographer and film maker, allowing me to capture a moment in time and later use my images for printing inspiration.
Alongside my personal practice, I work part time at Urban Emporiums in the Jewellery Quarter as an exhibition curator and barista. We offer a free exhibition space for local artists to showcase and potentially sell their work.
