My work is inspired by old tools and discarded metal items found in and around the Suffolk coast; rusty objects such as hooks, chains and working shackles. I am interested in the surface textures of the metal with its well weathered patina resulting from years of exposure and use. The process of etching creates similar results to that found on these eroded pieces and it is this that I seek to reproduce and represent, reflecting where possible their history.

I have recently made prints in response to drawings I made on beaches in Suffolk, the Outer Hebrides and Portugal last year. I am interested in the textures of the rocks and stones that have been weathered by the sea that make up these coastlines. Again the process of etching creates similar results to that found on these eroded landscapes.
