Painting, Printmaking

Mono silk screen prints based on visual sensations experienced while travelling. I build my prints up in layers until I have realised my vision.

  • St, Barnabas Press, 9, Belfast Yard, Coldhams Road, Cambridge, CB13EW
  • Born in Suffolk, I studied Fine Art at Norwich School of Art and Goldsmiths College. My career as an Art and Art History teacher spanned 40 years and throughout that time I continued to develop my own ideas and work. In my studio at St Barnabas Press I am constantly pushing the boundaries of possibility in exploring new ways to realise my vision through the medium of silk screen print. My inspiration currently comes from land/seascapes in North Norfolk, Suffolk, the Fens, the South of France and the East Coast of Scotland. Through layering I am interested in simplifying, abstracting and capturing the effect of different weather fronts, seasons and times of day on familiar land/seascapes. Although my prints are sometimes part of a series each one is different and whatever the format I always stress the horizontal as I aim to produce images that have a peaceful, almost meditative effect on the viewer. 
    My small, very detailed, gouache ‘conversation’ paintings of shells and pebbles (painted during lockdown) were inspired by Henri Fantin -Latour’s composition and use of black and white in his studies of a ‘teacup’ and a ‘candle holder’ in the Fitzwilliam Museum. Similar to my screen prints I wanted to achieve a sense of stillness and calm both in the imagery and in the onlooker.

    My work can be seen every weekend in July at St Barnabas Press.
