I am a Worthing based printmaker creating prints using the the linocut method.
As with most art forms, I start with a blank canvas (the lino block, or ‘plate’). In order to build up a print (if printing multiple colours) I have to work backwards. Starting with the lightest colour, followed by a darker shade, then a darker colour, and so on, until the piece is complete.
If a single piece of lino is used, the method is known as 'Reduction', meaning that a cut cannot be repeated and the plate can no longer be used once complete. This creates limited edition collectible prints.
Other methods are; Multiblock and Single Colour.
Living between the sea and the Sussex Downs, I am inspired by both, as well as anything I see whilst on my travels, or whatever may pop into my head.
I am available for commissions or collaborations. I'm always happy to answer any questions or get involved with anything lino-like!
