These 2 videos represent how I prepare the plates for the xylograph and collagraph prints. The first is how I pass the drawing onto all 4 plates so that they coincide when printing. The second is the preparation of the collagraph plate using substances which absorb more or less ink and the preparation of the wood plates using a gouge to lift the wood creating positive and negative areas
Welcome to my new website. I am sure that you will find your way around easily and enjoy seeing close-up images of the works . You will see that I have added a shop so that you can buy works online if you like.
The packing and shipping worldwide is included in the price of all the works. The prices vary from those on the virtual galleries where I exhibit because the gallery takes a percentage.
Due to pandemic COVID 19, all the exhibitions and art fair had either been cancelled or postponed to a later date.
You will see that I have inserted a video on this page. I thought that it might be interesting for you to see the process of how a print is made. As it takes about an hour or so to do I have edited and speeded up the video. The plates were already made. In the future I hope to make a video of the preparation of the plates.
You will also see that I have added a journal page to this site which includes the coming and past events where my work will be/was exhibited and includes articles which I have written/published.
I am happy to announce that a print that I presented in a print competition, Premio de Grabado San Lorenzo de El Escorial, has been selected and will be exhibited from the 11th August until 29th September 2021 in the Casa de Cultura in San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Madrid, Spain.
I am happy to say that I have been invited to exhibit my new large oils, sculptures and prints in the New Contemporary Mediterranean Art Fair, SM’ART 2020 in Aix-en-Provence, France with the Monteoliveto Gallery from Naples and Nice. Having been postponed several times, finally the fair is scheduled for the 23rd – 27th of September 2021. For more information see the Upcoming events page which you can find in About me.
