The ideas for my linocuts come from various sources.
Many of my themes are nature related: I live in the countryside and walk my dogs Bella and Marshall in the fields near where I live, so inspiration from animals, birds, flowers and trees is never far away.
Conversely man-made structures and the built environment are often good sources for prints.
I live near Oxford so I tend to visit with my camera quite often just in case something catches my eye.
I am constantly on the look out for anything that would make a good composition or element to a picture.
I have always loved boldness in art whether in colour or black and white and I think Lino printing is the perfect medium for showing this off.
