Painting & Drawing / Printmaking • Pink Route

I am an artist and printmaker. My work is based on drawing, observing nature and the seasonal shifts in the Galloway countryside. Sketchbooks inform my work and help me develop subjects into etchings, lithographs, or larger pen and ink paintings.

My Practice

My work begins in sketching, often outdoors in the Galloway countryside where I live. I then work at home at the kitchen table developing ideas from my sketchbooks. Some will be further developed into larger paintings, others into print projects, ranging from etchings to lithographs and monoprints depending on the potential within the sketch itself.

Tools & Materials

I explore ideas in sketches with Fineline pens and watercolour, then paint larger work with a range of Japanese brushes and bamboo and steel dip pens and acrylic inks. I have a small etching press at home but I also use the Gracefield Print Studio and Edinburgh Printmakers. I use oil-based inks and at the moment I am using a technique called à la poupée, applying different ink colours to a single printing plate.

Spring Fling Activity

I will be showing a range of new and recent paintings and prints at the Bothy in Kirkpatrick Durham. To highlight the techniques behind some of my work, I will have my sketchbooks, plates, tools and materials and my own etching press on site. This is augmented by display story boards detailing the processes.
