Linocuts and woodcuts

After quite a few years of growing progressively more and more fed up with the traffic and density of population on the Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey borders Sue and I finally moved to West Norfolk from Sandhurst in the summer of 2010. The best move we’ve ever made. When I retired I bought an old Hopkinson & Cope’s Improved Albion Press No:5615 that was made in 1876 and the press remains totally original except for one bolt that has been replaced. I use the press to print linocuts and woodcuts that are now, in the main, of the landscape of the West Norfolk Fenland and the big skies that dominate the landscape. I fish for pike, perch and zander in the local rivers and drains, shoot and get depressed about the fortunes of Middlesbrough Football Club, a club that I have supported all my life. Well, someone has to. Meanwhile if you would like to see more of my work and read further just click on the word BLOG at the top right of this page and all will be revealed. I also write and illustrate another blog at and this blog is all about the area where I live in the heart of the West Norfolk Fenland.
