This series of original linocuts are inspired from travels. From the coast to the desert, I have tried to create a style of the landscape through the use of light, marks and textures all captured within a Polaroid-style framed edge. Each piece details its location through its spirit as well as its visual representation.

All of my screenprints are based on my own original photographs, stripping the subject down to its bare minimum of light and shade using a halftone dot. This image is printed onto a textured background that I created from printed linocut blocks. The final prints are slightly abstract with a strong graphic style.

Abstract Woodcut Series

I wanted to experiment with wood rather than lino to create this series. The grain of the wood creates another level of texture to each print, adding to the individuality. These prints are all based loosely around pairs and the relationship between the two shapes.

A series of individual letters and numbers created from three printmaking processes in a final archival quality giclée print. Crafted from handpressed custom letterpress type with a screenprint halftone drop shadow all onto a handprinted linocut textured background. Each element is carefully scanned, captured and brought together into the final print.
