Based in Greenwich, London 
Limited edition aquatint etchings
Le flâneur - the crowd is his element, as the air is that of birds and water of fishes. His passion and his profession are to become one flesh with the crowd. For the perfect flâneur, for the passionate spectator, it is an immense joy to set up house in the heart of the multitude, amid the ebb and flow of movement, in the midst of the fugitive and the infinite. To be away from home and yet to feel oneself everywhere at home; to see the world, to be at the centre of the world, and yet to remain hidden from the world—impartial natures which the tongue can but clumsily define.
( C.Baudelaire, Paris 1860's)
Like Le flâneur? I also created these other two etchings to complete the print set

New Etching for March 2021
Flight of the Bar-tailed Godwit
Spit-bite Aquatint Etching on Zerkil paper
Edition of 60
The Bar-tailed Godwit, Limosa Lapponica (Kuaka in Maori) perform the longest nonstop flights of any non-seabird, and, unlike a seabird, there is no chance of an inflight snack. These birds make the 1200km/7500miles nonstop flight from New Zealand to Alaska each year to reach their breeding grounds. Flying continuously (not even gliding) over the ocean at an average speed of 80km/h, the journey takes six to eight days. For Maori they were birds of mystery, (‘Kua kite te kohanga kuaka? - Who has seen the nest of the kuaka?’) and were believed to accompany spirits of the departed.
