I am still one of the very few young wood engravers in the UK and, over the past year, my work has been picking up momentum, with more people finding my work and requesting commissions but also the speed at which my work is becoming more refined and detailed. I have been lucky enough to have been part of the Wirksworth Arts Trail twice before. Both times were a success, having been looked after by brilliant, welcoming hosts! I love to demonstrate the process, either engraving or printing using my portable press and talking to those interested in the technique.
Cliftlands E2 - Wollerton Old Hall Size 9.4 x 7cms Description - Wood engraving of 'Wollerton Old Hall’, a prize winning garden in Shropshire. The garden is a dream for engraving, it’s somewhere you can find yourself imagining your way through, towards the open summer house.
Cliftlands E 3 - Woodland Floor Size - 28 x 9cms Description - A Wood engraving triptych of the Attingham Park floor. This engraving received the ‘First time Exhibitor’ award from the Society of Wood Engravers.
Cliftlands E 4 - Shrewsbury Morris Size - 10 x 9cms Description - Wood engraving of ‘The Shrewsbury Morris’ Dancers. A staple of the summer time in the Shrewsbury Square and a side I have been part of since I was 11!
