Drawing, Printmaking, Documentary drawing.
I am a printmaker and artist who specialises in drawing.
Reportage and Documentary Drawing projects occupy much of my time. Currently
I am working on a World War 1 centenary project
"War Art & Surgery" which documents the
preparation of military medical personnel pre deployment and the
rehabilitation of servicemen post surgery.
The project seeks to mirror the archive of pastel protraits of wounded soldiers in World War 1 by Sir Henry Tonks.
Some of these drawings may be seen on my blog, more will be posted from time to time.
Cheshire Open Studios May 2013

may be seen at first hand during the Open Studios weekend Saturday 25th

My personal work uses drawings of horses, often as a metaphor, often as studies for larger works. There are new Horse drawings on the Horses page - click on link
A new etching "Parthian Archers" is now on the printmaking page
