Many Hats Printmaking / Bobbydazzle Jewellery

I am a Derbyshire-based photographer and printmaker. My love of print was born of a lifelong love of photography. I’ve been taking photographs as long as I can remember, but only in recent years took my first steps in printmaking, initially using my photos as the basis for screen prints. Having discovered the creative possibilities of that medium, I was instantly hooked and it’s really no exaggeration to say that it was the start of a life-changing creative journey of discovery.

I work across a range of techniques and particularly enjoy those which allow me to bring my photography and printmaking together, such as screen printing, photographic etching and cyanotype. There are no particular ideals or themes behind my work; some of it may be ‘serious’ and meaningful, some light-hearted and whimsical, but mostly it’s simply intended to be pleasing to the eye. Above all, I make images for the joy of creating them and hoping that they’ll bring some of that joy to the people who look at them.
