I got my degree in illustration at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee. It was in my final year that I found Wood cut printmaking and this lead me to find Wood engraving while doing an MA in Children’s book illustration. It was the feel of the wood that lead me towards these printing processes, rather than something like lino, which doesn’t give you the same sort of resistance or even sound.

It has taken me quite a few years to find my medium and while I enjoy drawing, painting and digital work, I’ll always come back to this process.
