Although art was always my best subject at school my love for it only developed years later. My initial interest lay in sketching and watercolour painting but I got hooked on printmaking very shortly after moving from Belfast to Sydney in 2001. Over the next five years I explored the art of etching and aquatint before the art of parenting took over. Thirteen years later, I explored ways to do printmaking more easily at home and re-discovered the simplicity of the monotype process. I have since acquired a Blick press and converted the family laundry into a mini studio. I enjoy working four days a week as a Christian minister and making prints whilst doing the washing!
