Linocut, Monoprint & Drypoint Etching Print Gallery

About My Prints . . . [ show / hide ]

I took up printmaking in 2009 and I have been building up a body of prints. As a process it is not only fascinating, but also quite akin to sculpture. This is most noticeable with linocut and its similarity to carving. I particularly like using architectural images and the way the process brings out the abstract qualities. I especially enjoy drypoint etching where the process requires an exactness and confidence in the use of mark-making, probably because of its affinity to pen & ink. Through cross-hatching the tonal quality achievable is great, but once through the press the image attains an almost charcoal like softness. These prints are about strong light, therefore chiaroscuro is important. The subject matter usually revolves around architecture or the figure within landscape.
