From Petersfield drive up Bell Hill and turn right into Honeycritch lane just before the Trooper Inn. From Alton turn left just after the Trooper Inn.

I'm currently on a journey depicting the 'Solent Way' from Emsworth to Southampton using the medium of Multi Plate Sugar-lift Etching. The image originates as a watercolour carried out on location which I use to make a reverse image on three copper plates that will subsequently be etched and printed together to make the final image. The medium of etching takes the original watercolour into a more bold and graphic image that accentuates the calligraphic representation of the landscape. The copper plates are used to make a limited edition of 20 prints only, each one being slightly unique from the other.

My influences range from British Visionary artists such as Turner, Samuel Palmer & John Piper to European artists such as Raoul Duffy & Van Gough. Since graduating from Camberwell School of Art & Crafts in Fine Art Painting & Printmaking in 1986, Etching has been my chosen medium to extend my drawing and creative practice.
