'I practise as an artist-printmaker from my studio in Ely creating hand-made original prints in small limited editions. I can also be found teaching printmaking part-time at the Curwen Print Study Centre. Much of my work is about change and loss or transition - the consequence of the passing of time or human / animal intervention. Working on a series of 'Hunter & Hunted' woodcuts in 2012 has revealed my interest in ecology and the interconnectedness of all things in the natural world. Each of my prints is the result of lengthy exploration - I use the printmaking process to develop and evolve the work.'
