I was born in 1946 in Skegness, Lincolnshire
I trained as a painter / printmaker at Hastings school of art and the City and Guilds of London Art School. At Hastings I was introduced to wood engraving by tutor Michael Renton and was attracted to the precise craft having previously been a cartographer with a map production unit in HM Forces.
I live in Oulton near the Norfolk/Suffolk border and the regional landscape and architecture are the main sources for my work. Although the prints are essentially descriptive there are necessary alterations to help the designs and to exploit the strengths of the medium. The engravings are made on lemonwood, maplewood or on modern plastic surfaces manufactured for engraving. The technique is the same for all and the finished prints are hand burnished from the blocks.
I have been a member of the Society of Wood Engravers since 2003 and a regular contributor to their annual exhibitions. Examples of work are held at the Ashmolean Museum and in the SWE Archive at Manchester Metropolitan University Library.
