I have always loved trees.
I began wood engraving a few years ago and really enjoyed it.
I developed my skills and shared my love of this form of relief printing by volunteering in the Press room at Cherryburn the NT museum to Thomas Bewick, the world renowned Wood engraver and naturalist. I was lucky to be able to demonstrate wood engraving on Further Tales from Northumberland with Robson Green, and on Flog it with Paul Martin.
In 2017 I discovered wood prints and the work of Bryan Nash Gill. I was hooked.
In August 2019 I opened my studio full time and moved to live in Grizedale Forest, Cumbria.
