A hand-inked linocut inspired by a trip to the Peak District in the UK, this valley landscape in Dovedale is one of two pieces in a similar style – the other work is titled, How Green Was My Hill. In these pieces, as in other works of mine, I sought to transform the subtle reality of the everyday into a vibrant, alternative perception of reality by using clear, strong lines which are combined here with a Japanese-influenced style of clear, vibrant block colours. This print will come with a signed and dated certificate of authentication.

Art is a place I can be free from the constraints of everyday life and enter a world of the imagination. Dreams and the subconscious provide a deep well of ideas, with the subjects of time, childhood, nature and mortality echoing throughout my work. Over the years, there have been several different thematic periods to my output, with a variety of media chosen according to my aims and interests at that time. In Vincent Dreams of Sunflowers, for instance, I favoured the delicacy of pen and watercolour to create detailed imagery rich in symbolism. By contrast, in a recent series of oil pastel and acrylic paintings, I employed bold colours and deliberate clean lines to convey meaning through shape and form. The hawk-like figure that occurs early on in my work reappears again, as do several familiar motifs including eyes and masks, reflecting my fascination with the seen and unseen. Of late – and with the discovery that my great-grandfather was a lithographic artist – I have become increasingly drawn to the process of printmaking. Preferring the starkly unadorned images achievable through relief printing techniques, I have expanded my portfolio to include a number of original linocuts. As an admirer of William Blake, my painting and poetry often go hand in hand, their symbiotic relationship resulting in a number of combined projects that can stand together or alone. Ultimately, to me the blank canvas – like the empty page – represents endless possibilities for creation; here I can express and share alternative perceptions of life through visions, dark or dream-like, playful or thoughtful.
