I use both painting and printmaking in my work. They feed off each other in a very positive way. Sometimes, if I am having problems with a piece of work, I experiment in another medium with the result that I not only solve the difficulty, but find something new which takes me in a direction I may not have considered. My work as a painter and printmaker usually develops side by side, but occasionally in independent blocks. Often, after completing a series of paintings, I make prints on the same theme, but discover that the germ of the idea is all that remains, as the prints, by their own unique process have undergone a metamorphosis en route. I rarely have a fixed endpoint in view, as I begin tentatively with an idea, image or piece of text which I want to explore. I work in the print media of lithography, etching and silkscreen.
