On the east coast where I live and work, inspiration is everywhere. Gentle countryside, unspoiled river valleys, the atmospheric long shingle beaches and peaceful marshlands. I can often be found cycling around my local lanes armed with a sketchbook, gathering ideas for my next linoprint. Back in my studio I carve the design into lino block, then use my cast iron Albion press (which has been with me since the beginning of my printmaking journey!) to make my prints. Making my art is my pleasure – hopefully it gives others pleasure too.
