I am an artist by night and a mathematician by day. My imagination is fired by pattern, symmetry, perspective and proportion – all mathematical principles that work to create a harmonious piece of art. These principles strongly influence the aesthetics of architecture – which is why I often take my inspiration from the amazing buildings and scenes around Oxfordshire. I enjoy using a black and white medium: by removing colour, I can focus on compositions emphasising the balance of light and dark, shapes and textures.
I was born and raised in Combe, Oxfordshire. After working in other artistic media, I started lino cutting seriously during the pandemic: it gave me the time I needed to experiment and develop my technique and style. I begin with sketches and photos which I visualise will translate well into lino images. My pictures are mainly between A4 – A2 in size and can take several weeks to complete (working a few hours a day) because of the precision and detail involved. It is a reflective and meditative process for me, and I hope you enjoy the results.
