Based at Trewarveneth Studios in Newlyn, Cornwall
The lines of an etching signify something meditative in the landscape. A methodical process of observing and drawing the coast, reflecting the balance of being beside the water.
Each print begins with a sketchbook drawing that is slowly worked into an etching and printed to a limited edition in the studio. When working with a plate my practice of printmaking focuses on the movement of ink and the direction of hand-drawn lines, becoming familiar with the marks that are unique to each piece.
Paintings explore the simple notion of repeating a single mark, echoing the repetitive mark making and process of the etching prints. The stillness and subtle details of the landscape are a focus to each piece, stripping back the process and featuring a hand-stitched line that curves along the surface of the canvas, suggesting the horizon or the edge of the land.
