Lino prints, wood engraving & paintings

As an artist, I try to capture the weather, the landscape and the pleasure of being outdoors. Much of my inspiration is from the North Norfolk coast and its nature reserves.

Creating hand printed linocuts using an Albion Press called Hettie, made by Henry Watts in Southwark, 1859. A few wood engravings, charcoal drawings and more recently acrylic and oil paintings escape from the studio from time to time.

The doors to the Galleries are sadly closed to visitors. Many are still operating a click and collect, or just taking orders and requests for happier safer times.  For more information on the galleries stocking my artwork, please see the Gallery page 

New greeting cards 

Three new greeting cards by Orwell Press have been added to the greeting cards page.

Back in the studio

Back in the studio during lockdown, I've had to work through some of the sketches from a few years ago. 'Avocet One' started as a linocut and I still have the master plate sitting in the studio.

 

I thought the image would make a delightful silkscreen. Using the old fashioned way of producing a silkscreen with tissue paper stencils has resulted in an edition of only 15. 'Avocet One' has been joined by 'Avocet Two'. Both silkscreens size 14 x 18cm.
