La Macina di San Cresci



“Artists are interesting creatures. We can be obsessive, dedicated, spirited and single minded in our pursuit for that perfect realisation of our art. We tend to be outsiders and are often that square peg in the round hole, so when you find an oasis like San Cresci you hold on tight -- for it’s that sense of belonging which welcomes you.”

The natural environment around me fuels my passion to be creative. I enjoy connecting to the history and location of the area I live or visit. I am particularly interested in capturing a personal view of a place or landscape that has caught my interest.
My passion for printmaking is inspired by my love of woodcut printing. The medium is full of compromises and quirks and maintains an element of unpredictability from start to finish. This style of printmaking fascinates me and contributes to the uniqueness of each hand pulled print. Woodcuts can be bold or subtle, crude or refined. The process of cutting the blocks has never ceased to delight me.
