'Meersbrook View' print now for sale

Hello there

Right, my new linocut print is now for sale in my Folksy shop. Was away at the Green Man Festival, so putting it int shop was somewhat delayed. It is printed with blue ink on off-white German Zerkall 170gsm acid-free paper, from an edition of 100, signed and numbered.

It costs £12 plus p+p. Here is the link to it:

Meersbrook View print

Sunday, 15 August 2010


hello...i've done a new art-piece. it is a linocut of a view through a window of Meersbrook in Sheffield. bit of a change of subject from the last one, i know! the Sheffield skyline is pretty inspiring, methinks.

 i'm going to put it in my folksy shop in about a week.

cheers, and keep on crafting (and grafting)

New artwork: Rubber ear syringe

well, i've now figured out how to configure my blog. thanks to those who have chosen to follow me so far. i hope it may grow!

i have just completed a new piece of artwork. thought you might like to see it. it is of a rubber ear syringe. a doctor gave it to me and to use it at home. it worked! i was struck by the beauty of the object, and so decided to create an artwork based on it.

art and medicine in one place, ahem.

it is a pencil and paint image, as a slight detour from my normal printwork. the media seemed to suit the subject better. i'll be producing a series of posters of this to sell in my Folksy shop and at fairs soon.

New blog!


I have just created this blog to display my artwork and tell people about what i do. I create images using linocut and etching techniques. I've been doing this for a fair few years now, but only recently considered taking it 'seriously'. Oh, and I'm based in Sheffield, UK.

I am inspired mostly by the ordinarily absurd, animals, people, objects, landscapes, but probably not unicorns. A few artists who I like are Francisco Goya, Stanley Spencer and Max Beckmann.

I sell my works at various craft fairs, and also in my online shop:

Thats all for now. Just figured out how to display a slideshow. I'm very proud of myself. Next I'll be adding more content.
