Here is a selection of work created in the last two years. All the work uses a heavily textured paper which I made myself. I do not add colour during the making process. After allowing the paper to dry naturally and priming it, I paint it with acrylic and gouache paint.
My choice of colour, combined with the paper’s texture, can sometimes suggest the qualities of metal or leather. The lettering is applied to the surface with gouache and a fine brush. I use versals, based on skeleton Roman capital letters, in much of my work.
