I first learned of the potential for multi-coloured linocut printmaking while studying Graphic Design at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in Dundee.

With access to a world class studio and encouraged by inspiring staff and colleagues, I was able to focus on learning different forms of printmaking techniques that included itaglio, lithography, etching and linocut. I loved the hands-on nature of linoleum carving, and the subsequent variations of mark making that could be achieved from Pfeil cutting tools and using Columbian and Albion presses.

From there I decided to see how far I could go using the reduction technique (applying multiple layers of colour using one block). It transpires that there are no limits!

Over 30 years later I'm still excited and challenged by the possibilities of creating compelling lino prints, some small and some very large, mostly colour, and always in limited editions.
