The filmmaker James Benning defined an artist as 'someone who pays attention and reports back'. This rings true for me; I observe the places in which I find myself, take visual notes, and then - back in the studio – to try to recreate how it felt to be there, often reworking favourite subjects, and moments, through years of re-imagining, and redefining. The finished work speaks as much of time spent as it does of places seen.

I work from my studio at South Square in Bradford, where I experiment with a wide range of print methods. In recent years I have concentrated on drypoint and collagraph media, as well as renewing an acquaintance with direct drawing.
