Over the past few years monoprinting has been my medium of choice. I find that it forces me to understand precisely where my interest lies in my subject and to focus on that. It also offers the most vibrant colours and retains in the end result the vivacity necessary to its execution.


I studied drawing and painting at the Leith School of Art (2000-2002) and subsequently studied with Kate Downie RSA in her own studio. Under her guidance I continued to develop skills in drawing and painting but also learned about monoprinting. For the past four years I have been a member of Edinburgh Printmakers.
