I create small imaginary paintings in oils and acrylics, often returning to a theme of coastlines or urban edgelands.

My linoprints and woodcuts are characterised by strong white marks against a black background, often with human figures placed in a landscape. I print a limited edition using Intaglio & Lawrence oil based inks on Zerkell and Hahnemuhle etching papers.

My woodcut 'Ninety Six' was exhibited at the 165th RWA Open exhibition.
It won the Marcus Fitzgibbon Memorial Purchase Prize and the Evolver Prize (front cover for the Nov/Dec 2017 issue). It was also shortlisted for the 250th RA Summer Exhibition 2018.

I was recently informed that my large woodcut 'Bridge' has been selected for the RWA Open Exhibition, running from 7th October - 25th November 2018 . rwa.org.uk

I am currently preparing for the North Bristol Art Trail which takes place the weekend of November 24th/25th from 10am - 6pm.
