Who I am and what I do
I trained as a drama teacher (with actorly pretensions) far too many years ago. Moved to Denmark in 1997, where I involved myself in gardening and writing about vegetable growing for Haven magazine. (That's a link to the magazine, not my articles which may not be saved in digital form). They were published in 2006. That's almost a thousand years ago... I make prints and other artworks.
I started making prints over twelve years ago and developed my techniques under the tutelage of Julia Farrer at Holbæk Kunsthøjskole. My work has been commended as original and curious, humorous and dark. I make etchings and monotypes as well as leporello, pop-ups and structures from card and paper as seen at the Limfjordens Censuret Udstilling and elsewhere.
Prints evolve from small sketches in my workbooks. Some of the work books contain pop-ups. Paper and card structures further develop themes and and ideas in the books. These give expression to the curious world that inhabits my old head. My love of theatre often informs the finished works.
What's my work about? Me, I suspect.
