    I enjoy walking on Dartmoor and this print was inspired by the many thorn trees that populate the moor. Rugged tors disappear into the distance beneath a dramatic cloudscape.

    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
