Artist’s Statement

I view my linocut and etching work as experimentation with line. I like my lines to be playful. Colour comes later.

I hope my work stimulates the taste buds of the eye. Some works are more interior than others. I think my etchings are more interior.

I like working within the square. It feels like having fun in a box. Sometimes it is more like struggling in a box. I aim for simplicity. When I am lucky it comes out fully formed. It is always best to take myself by surprise.
