Printmaking: relief print

Liverpool is one of my favourite places in England. This print is based on a photograph of the “Three Graces”, those famous buildings on the waterfront. The architectural shapes of the buildings are cut in cardboard and printed in solid colours; the finer outlines were cut into a lino block and printed on top.

The Perthshire Creates Designers and Makers exhibition

My latest series of monochrome linoprints will be on display in this group exhibition at Perth Museum & Art Gallery. Work from over twenty creatives represents the contemporary nature of artwork currently being inspired and developed within the area. The series of linoprints is based on the museum’s collection of photos of lost buildings of Perth. The atmosphere and the old traditional architectural details captured in these images appeal to me and I have translated the mood in these old photographs through the medium of linocutting, applying my style of transforming through condensing and accentuating.
