About the Artist
My work is inspired by buildings and urban scenes, and my most recent work focuses on large scale construction projects. I draw outdoors at locations in and around London and then develop the drawings I’ve made on-site into etchings. The underlying theme in my work is change, recording a point in time before the building is finished and takes on its final form. I find buildings under construction visually dynamic and enjoy capturing these structures as they develop.
The process of etching is central to my work. I work on the etching plate in many stages using a range of etching techniques that build the image in layers, redrawing, adding and reworking. This process means I can achieve intense line and tonal contrast enabling the final image to have a sense of impact, presence and place.
