My work is inspired by natural form found both in nature and the macro world which is often polluted by the artificial objects randomly found within the environment. By producing photographic images through the medium of printmaking I can draw attention to the frequently overlooked and unseen facets of the visual world.

My printmaking has developed through an interest in analogue photography using vintage cameras and other photographic techniques to help me explore alternative processes, for example lithography and photo etching, to illustrate the mechanical image.

Whilst use of the black and white image is one of my key subjects, colour, structure and patterns in nature also draw my attention. When focussing on the use of the black and white image I can illustrate the contrasts and forms held within the captured subject.

Prints are produced using a range of traditional photographic techniques and print making processes. Using a variety of printmaking techniques allows me to add texture and create a sense of age and passage of time, representing the ephemeral nature of life.
