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.
New work is added to my shop on a regular basis. A few of the latest additions are shown below. Click on an image to find out more.
I have some exciting news...I'm going to be in print! To be exact, my work is to be included in a forthcoming publication by Alan and Marion Marshall from Mascot Publishing.
Following on from the success of 'The Artful Hare and 'The Printmakers Cat' they about to publish a book called 'Paw Prints' A lovely collection of images of dogs from some of the UK's finest printmakers. I'm so pleased and excited they decided to include me!
