Since 2009, I’ve worked full time as a printmaker, specialising in the
reduction method of linocutting. I produce small editions of
hand-printed original linocuts in my studio in the Conwy Valley in North
Wales. My work is inspired largely by the Welsh landscape, its mountains, rivers, waterfalls and coastline.
