Based in my studio by the sea I am inspired by the patterns and beauty of the maritime world around me, be it gigs or lighthouses, fish or seabirds.
I’m a Doctor of Birds – that’s not to say I can fix them, I just spent a long time studying them. Using this zoological background as a starting point, my artwork employs clean stylish lines and vibrant colours to explore the bold patterns and images abundant in the islands wildlife and marine heritage. Living in Scilly I combine working for the Wildlife Trust counting the seabirds with creating prints of them. I specialise in making linocut prints which have a bold, graphic, handmade aesthetic. I make a limited number of each print (10 to 50) and because of subtle variations in the process each print is unique. All prints are hand printed, signed and numbered in my studio by the sea. They are sold unframed and the prices include free postage (either rolled in a tube or in a sturdy envelope). They make wonderful gifts and are truly affordable artwork that will look delightful in any home. Let Scilly come to you...wherever you live feel the sand between your toes, the salt-wind against your face and the blast of ozone.
