About me

Printmaker/ illustrator based in Edinburgh. He specialises in creating highly detailed, multi- layered linocuts and illustrations for clients, that generally resemble this particular style.

He taught himself lino cutting when he first moved to Edinburgh in late 2010 and found success selling his first linocuts in local art fairs thereafter. During the initial years his themes were heavily focused on animals with anthropomorphic behaviors and characteristics, in the style of children's book illustrations.

In his more recent work, it is evident that he is passionate about stories of exploration whether these are real (historical accounts) or imaginary (sci-fi).

He enjoys sharpening edged hand tools and spend hours figuring out the various challenges that printmaking presents me with.
