Creating original images on iPad is amazingly liberating; there is no tension about spoiling a picture as there's always the delete button; there is an endless palette of colour; there are techniques for controlling opacity and building layers of colour washes; in fact with practice there are tools that can be used to create every effect possible. I draw from life, photographs and imagination and can work virtually anywhere. David Hockney has demonstrated that digital technology offers an exciting and accessible new medium for artists of all abilities.
I am a printmaker who has lived in West Yorkshire for over 30 years. I find the rural and urban variety and contrast around me a never ending source of inspiration. Currently ideas are in response to stimuli arising from these landscapes and I am particularly attracted to man’s effect on the environment. Within my work I use a variety of two dimensional and printing techniques presenting semi abstract images through screen print, collograph, monoprint and etching.
