Crimson Masquerade

Artwork details: etching, edition of 12 prints, 16 x 10.8 inches (41 x 27 cm), 2010.

This print is rather striking, one might even say alarming, especially given the colour. It has rather grown on me now but all the same it didn't come out as I had imagined, and, having spent many, many hours on the original sketch, I thought I would use it again to create something more like I had originally planned, so the sketch also became the wordily-titled 'Better the Last Smile than the First Laughter'.

Prints & Original Artwork

You can now buy prints of my work (and a few originals) in my Etsy Shop. If you would prefer to buy direct from me, or you cannot find what you are looking for in the shop, feel free to email me instead: If you are interested in original artwork, I do intend to post a list of currently available artworks in due course, but I'm in the process of moving and re-building a main website, so for the meantime please also email me for more information on originals, and also commissions.
