I have been a practicing printmaker working from my studio in Norfolk for over 25 years. During my degree course in Fine Art, I became fascinated by bees and my interest has continued until this day. I get great satisfaction knowing my artwork is generating awareness for the importance of bees and in 2019 I was delighted to have my mezzotint ‘Bumblebee Species 2’ selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition!
I was also extremely excited to have my mezzotints and illustrations featured on the covers of bumblebee ecologist, Dave Goulson’s books, ‘A Sting in the Tale’ and ‘A Buzz in the Meadow’
I have exhibited my artwork widely, most notably at ‘The Society of Wildlife Artists annual show, London, and the Affordable Art Fair, London and New York. I am proud to be involved with ‘The Norwich Print Fair’ since its first show in 1995 and have also organised and curated ‘Print Fair Elements’ at The Forum, Norwich, both these events dedicated to promoting printmaking in East Anglia.
Currently my subjects have broadened to include other insect species, plants and birds. I enjoy using a variety of print techniques, most notably mezzotint, which involves a great deal of time and patience.
