Weave

Aquatint print of a concrete building facade. Part of a series of architectural prints exploring the build up of tone to create 3D imagery and depth.
2019
Print size 150mm2 ; framed size 285mm2.

Centrepoint

Aquatint print of the facade of an iconic Brutalist building; as with other facade prints, the extraction of a facade detail becomes less about the building and more about an abstract pattern.
2019
Print size 335mm2; framed 335mm2

Hayward

Aquatint print of Brutalist architecture. The print explores the angle and geometry of the facade and the layering up of textures and tone to represent concrete.
2018
Framed size 500mm2.

Stairwell, Buenos Aires

Aquatint print of a detail of a stairwell in BA, Argentina. The stairwell caught my eye in its sculptural quality. Again the process is an excellent way to express concrete and texture.
2018
Print size 150mm2 ; framed size 285mm2.

Barbican Towers

Wood engraving of Brutalist architecture.
2020
Print size 75x100mm; framed size 355x280mm

Reach for the Sky

Wood engraving on Japanese Ho Sho paper depicting cranes on a city skyline. Each reaching higher than the other echoing the egotistical race to the top to build the highest building and make the biggest buck.
2019
Print size 75x100mm; framed size 355x280mm

Gherkin

Aquatint print exploring tone to represent glass and reflections; again the abstraction of a built facade fascinates me in its pattern making qualities.;

I draw inspiration from nature, the sea and urban spaces, enjoying the sharp contrast between the two. My work is a mix of processes and prints using linocut, wood engraving, and intaglio. I like to use a process that fits the subject matter in terms of the level of detail and texture required.
