Printmaking In Paradise
I have been designing and hand printing fun animal prints since 2001 using my own unique humourous style. I exhibit at galleries and shows throughout the year taking inspiration from birds and animals and especially my own dogs and cats. I particularly enjoy whippets! I am also inspired by the humour in childrens book illustrations which I loved as a child and from my previous career in animating.

My prints are designed to make you smile whether you are old or young. I hand-make all of my animal prints and use different techniques including Acid Plate Etching, Dry Point Etching, Screenprint, Gocco-Print and Collograph. I have also transferred several designs to other printed mediums. A particularly popular product range is the very unique and humourous 3D Bird Cards which always make you smile.
Printmaking in Paradise - I have just announced an exciting new printmaking holiday that I will be running in June 2018 in an idyllic location on Portugal. Click here for more information.

I am really excited to announce a new printmaking workshop holiday that I will be running in Portugal from 2nd - 9th June 2018. It is in an idyllic location in the mountains above Faro on the edge of the most beautiful lake. There will be 5 half days of printmaking with lots of time left to bird and nature watch, walk, sail, canoe, swim or just relax in these remote idyllic surroundings. The holiday will be full board with amazing home cooked international cuisine. Click here to find out more.
Anyone who has took an interest in my bear prints will know that these are heavily inspired by the 3 part documentary 'The Bear Family and Me' which follows wildlife cameraman Gordon Buchanan as he spends a year with a family of wild black bears in the forests of Minnesota.
Last night I had the privilege to meet Gordon when he came to Buxton Opera House to do his talk 'Animal Families and Me' about his work and particularly animal families that he has filmed. At the interval I met with Gordon and presented him with a copy of my Standing Bear and Walking Bear black bear screenprints.
