I have been teaching for over twenty years and enjoy seeing people’s excitement when they can make printmaking their own. I teach by demonstrating techniques. I think this is the most direct way to pass on practical skills. Teaching for the school is satisfying because print can be treated as part of general practice, not as a separate entity.

Printmaking has been a major part of my practice for most of my working life. Although I trained as a painter, I have always used print as well. For me, there is no separation between them – I work on plates, transferring drawing and colour through the press, or directly on paper or canvas – sometimes combining the two.
