I have always drawn and I am in awe of artists who have taken a delight in drawing such as Picasso, Hockney, Leonard Baskin, Ben Shahn and the naïve artists, Edward Hicks, Alfred Wallis and Bryan Pearce, for their mastery of line and strong sense of design. I find them all inspirational. For me, mezzotint is the most beautiful form of printmaking with its deep rich surface, and drawn images can in some lights appear and disappear giving a mystery to the work. These are the things I like to explore, to give the viewer many levels of experience.
