About the Artist
I am a fine art printmaker at the Forge Print Studio in Digswell near Welwyn, Hertfordshire. I came to printmaking after retiring and studied traditional fine art print methods at the University of Hertfordshire and the Curwen Print Study Centre.
I enjoy the inherent beauty of handcrafted prints. Printmaking is to an extent a stochastic process and possesses an inherent randomness. The same set of starting values and initial conditions can lead to a collection of different outputs. The printmaking process is as much a part of the resulting image as the subject itself. The process is a critical and essential part of the resulting image as much or more than the image subject itself. An artist can choose any subject but how they manipulate or alter that subject image is their art.
