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 taught Wood Engraving by Chris Daunt, and traditional printmaking by Paul Goldsmith at Cherryburn as we volunteered together.
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 December 2018 I was featured on BBC Countryfile Printing a piece of Durham oak
In August 2019 I moved to Grizedale forest, Cumbria to live and work.
I now have a full time open studio in Grizedale.
