    This print was inspired by the early morning light reflecting upon a high spring tide on the Otter Estuary in East Devon. I have attempted to capture the stillness of the scene by thinning the printing inks to make them less opaque.

    I am an Exeter based printmaker with a particularly interest in skies and clouds which provide the focus of my images, the cloudscape often informing the overall composition of the completed print. For me the challenge is to render distant vistas and ethereal skies using a medium usually associated with bold blocks of colour. I achieve this by either lightening colours with white or thinning them with extender. The end result is prints which could be described as having a ‘painterly’ quality.
