I have run many miles over the years, which I find, helps me to relax and prioritise my thoughts. Although I tend not to think about anything but running. Being an artist that predominately uses print it was only a matter of time until my ideas and thoughts transgressed toward how I could use my time running into making art.

I guess it was inevitable, a natural progression.

In this case, zinc-etching plates are fixed to my trainers and record my journey from A to B.  I make note of the mileage, distance and steps taken but on return I simply ink up my plates and print the journey. A kind of unintentional map that has shown my route in a series of marks, dents and scratches. As dry points, the edition may be quite small but that is Ok because it gives me a good cause to go out running again.
