I received my training as an architect at London University (formerly called Northern Polytechnic School of Architecture), and so after many years of presenting architectural renderings in graphite, ink line and in watercolor, I am now enjoying a new means of expression through the Intaglio medium combining line and aquatint.
I am intrigued by both structure and the juxtapositions that occur in our urban landscape. The interplay of form and reflection can be seen as a duel between apposing forces. Façade vs. mirror, light vs. dark, my work attempts to present portraits of our cityscapes, which ultimately are portraits of ourselves.
