I studied Fine Art in Leeds and now live in York, where I create linocut prints and collages. I love the strong style that results from printing using lino. I draw inspiration from the city of York as well as my allotment, where I see the plants and animals which often feature in my work. I always have my camera with me so I can capture the images that I later use. As I produce multiples of prints, I use pieces of them to make collages. I enjoy deciding where each piece will go, experimenting with pattern, shape and colour.
