JAPONISME

These prints were some of the first etchings I ever created. Then, as now, I worked directly onto the plate (mostly zinc), very rarely doing more than a sketch to keep the marks made in the drawing fresh. Each plate is drawn by hand and can take weeks to complete


All the women depicted are myself, this series was an exploration of self using inspiration from Ukiyo-e (Floating World) Prints that were popular in Japan in the 18th Century and that inspired many Western artists such as Picasso and Monet

Unless otherwise stated all prints are available to order. I print to order and this can take up to 2 weeks to dry (please note due to Covid-19 I am unable to get into the print room safely at present but we are working on this - I have a way of printing that is safe but please bare with me as it might take a little longer than usual).


Please email me for more information and prices using the links under each image


Prices start at £80 and once an edition has sold out the plates are destroyed to preserve the edition


If you see my work in a gallery and come to me directly please tell me where you saw me originally as I work on an honest commission basis where I will still pay the gallery the commission owed
