Takayama Interior 3

I am a printmaker and interior designer, based in London. The subject of my printmaking practice is almost entirely the built environment that surrounds me, whether in London or on my travels, but sometimes the landscape of Scotland makes an appearance, since I was brought up there and visit home regularly.

A large number of the prints shown on this website form part of an ongoing series of etchings based on a visit to a traditional Japanese house in Takayama (Yoshijima Heritage House). Working within architectural practices, I have become aware of the preference for architectural photographers to take photos of empty buildings, seemingly unoccupied. While this doesn’t reflect how the buildings are used, they do imply an absence which is somehow intriguing. I hope that my prints reflect the same feeling – you know that somebody inhabits these spaces, but where are they? Have they just left the room? What is hidden behind the screens or open doors?

Recently I have been exploring the technique of collagraphy - using card as the matrix for the print. This has resulted in a series of colour prints based on a recent trip to Italy - you'll find these within the 'Various' section.

I have not published prices on this website for each print but would welcome enquiries - the prices for unframed prints range from £80 to £200 (based on size, mainly). I print very small limited editions from 3 to a maximum of 25.

Please see my contact page for the email address to send queries to.

Thanks for taking a look!
