In the first few weeks of August, 2019 I was in residency at the Tweed Regional Gallery, Murwillumbah, NSW. During my time there I took the opportunity to revisit older ideas from my visual diaries which had never been properly explored & work them up into more fully realised drawings. These drawings will now form the basis for my next series of linocuts & limited edition art books.

I have had over 40 years of experience as a professional artist in Australia and Italy working in the media of serigraphy, painting, collage, ceramic and relief printmaking. From 2012 I have concentrated entirely on linocut. I feel that linocut, whilst a simple and direct printmaking technique, offers endless aesthetic possibilities. It has a robust physicality and despite the considered nature of printmaking the results for me appear spontaneous and immediate.
