"I began screen printing in the mid 1970's while a student in Durham. I’ve always been drawn to the simple, graphic style of early transport posters and my prints have evolved from that. My work is chiefly aiming to portray the personality of places so colours and atmosphere are key to get the vibe of somewhere across to the viewer.
My prints use a process called reduction. The images are made by squeezing ink through a screen which has some of its area blocked off. As I print each layer I block off more and more of the screen to produce a series of silhouettes which, overlaid on each other, produce the final work.
My latest work is for Places of Pilgrimage - an exhibition I will be touring around England over the next two years showing in eight locations including Durham, Cambridge, Stourhead, Greenwich, Hexham, Devizes, Southwell and Masham."
