Thank you for visiting my online gallery.
All artworks are original multi-layered etchings using steel or copper metal plates. Using an acid bath, the drawing gets burnt onto the surface which I then ink by hand and process onto printmaking paper through an etching press. Depending on the piece, I use a number of materials including gouache, watercolours, gold leaf, pigments, Japanese inks, spray paint and gloss varnish. Most of my etchings are considered a Unique State ( U/S ) and limited edition because each etching in an edition can vary slightly in background colour, plate tone and painted elements. I am a little different to a traditional printmaking - I consider myself a contemporary printmaker, taking a traditional technique and modernising it.
Each artwork is for sale unless stated. If you click on an image it may direct you to my shop where you can purchase a print immediately. Some of my etchings, particularly the larger pieces are only made to order due to the extensive process and layering. Depending on what's in stock in the studio, please allow 3-6 weeks for printing and framing.
