Being in a garden surrounded by plants nearly as tall as me is my earliest recollection and awareness of my place in the natural world. In making art I look to recapture that original fresh vision.I work out of doors as much as possible, drawing most days and I print on a Hughes and Kimber Star Press where I live in Christow, experimenting with different techniques, inks and papers. Since studying Rembrandt’s etchings at University I have been fascinated by intaglio printmaking and through practice, I find that the mysteries of this alchemic medium gradually reveal themselves.I was originally trained as an art historian in Sussex and Paris and had a career in English art schools, at Brighton, Hereford and latterly as Head of Camberwell. My etchings have been exhibited recently at Royal West of England Academy ( Bristol), The Victoria Art Gallery (Bath), The Wilson (Cheltenham)  and The Mall and Cork Street Galleries in London.
