Artist Statement
I am lucky to have enjoyed both formal academic and artistic training. After graduating in theology from Oxford University, I studied at Edinburgh College of Art and then spent a long and productive period at Edinburgh Printmakers’ Workshop, where I learned the craft of etching, working alongside established artists. In 1998 I moved to France and stayed there for nearly a decade before returning to Britain to live in Suffolk.

Pigment and oil, metal, acid and paper – these are my raw ingredients and my delight. In the solitude of the studio I am a chef, a baker, or surgeon, cooking up a work, operating, bringing it to life – food, I hope, for my soul and others; I draw inspiration from the cycles and rhythms of nature as well as my theological studies, music and literature.

I keep a lot of notebooks, jotting down random ideas which are later transformed into series of work. I work in concentrated spurts, mainly with etching and aquatint, although I like to experiment with drypoint and woodcut. I’ve also made a number of artists’ books incorporating text and recently have been drawn back to drawing and painting.
