My work is influenced by my interest in Scandinavian and Eastern pattern design, a sense of the fantastical and a deep rooted love of mark making. I am fascinated and inspired by classical literature and folklore. I try to combine all of these elements in my illustrations and prints.
Approaching the medium from a background in screen printing, I am currently exploring how linocut can both recreate the quality of line and level of detail that I strive for with my illustrations, whilst also allowing for a freedom of drawing and and the serendipitous mark-making that relief printing achieves. My current body of relief prints reflect the state of calm that this printmaking method transfers, both through the subject matter and the physical act of carving the block.
