About The Artwork

The dodo at the Horniman Museum inspired the “Rowland's Dodo” and “true colours” prints. This dodo was made by the famous London taxidermy company Rowland Ward and bought for the museum in 1938. Hence the reference to Rowland in the title. I was drawn to the beautiful colours of the beak and feet of this dodo. The exact colour of dodo is not known, so it varies greatly depending on who has created it. Hence the reference to “True Colours” and not always knowing an animals/birds true colours or knowing peoples “true colours”.

My work is often a journey of feelings linked to an object, moment or past memory. Images have become both layered in process and layered in meaning. Animals and birds have become central to my current work and convey a subtle symbolism within their depiction. I exhibits my work in the UK and abroad. Recent exhibitions and art fairs include: The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition (2019, 2015, 2014 & 2013), Royal West of England Academy, The London Original Print Fair, The Affordable Art Fair, The Other Art Fair, The Woolwich Contemporary Print Fair and the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition. My work is held in many important private and public collections including the Scarborough Museum Trust, MTN print collection (South Africa), Rhodes University Alumni collection (South Africa). I have always had a passion for printmaking, which has always been my main form of expression. Although I have used etching and monoprint as my primary mediums, I have always experimented with new techniques. More recently I have used photopolymer plates (solar plates) and drypoint. These techniques are often combined with hand drawn or hand coloured chine collé. Exploring and developing new techniques opens up new possibilities which I feel is essential to my development as an artist and printmaker. Each print, including my recent photopolymer prints, is hand printed using an etching press. Each one is part of a limited edition and is signed and numbered.
