My prints draw on influences from popular art and children’s illustration.  I try to illustrate human dreams, fears and frailties, often through the representation of animals but also through machines, cars and ships.  I find that making pictures is rarely straightforward.  It is a process of reaching for thoughts and feelings that sit at the back of the mind.

Most of my pictures are created as screen prints.  Like other non-digital print techniques, the process encourages images that are graphic and quite simple in form. In screen printing each picture is created in layers as a series of separate drawings onto film. The layers are then transferred onto the screen using a chemical process, which is then hand printed as a stencil one colour at a time.
