The images featured here are examples of my art works produced during a fifty year practice. I continue to make new work. The archive is large, as I tend to work through series, each work relating to others with a particular idea in mind. The entire series makes up a resolved collection of my works starting from the early etchings. Each new series is informed by previous series, with technical experimentation across multiple mediums: etching, mono-types, drawing, painting, watercolours, collage and collographs - which is a method of printing a collage onto paper. The series are unusually displayed with my most recent work sitting last, to describe the progression of ideas throughout my career. The subject may change but many of the ideas remain the same. Some works however, may not follow an idea but are simply reflections of my practice such as my love of drawing the figure.
