    This triptych was inspired by the open landscape of the Somerset Levels. Pollarded willow trees frame a distant view of Glastonbury Tor while starlings fly low across the water heading toward their evening murmuration.

    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
