    Please note that in situ image is purely an indication of how a piece may look.

    This print was the result of discovering a discarded sky in a pile of test prints, sketches etc in the studio, and, having realised it wasn’t that bad after, all pairing it with a tree block from a previous print. I’d hesitate to offer a location for the image but I like the sense of light and space.

    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
