Robert works mostly on zinc plates to produce elegant and sometimes whimsical etchings. He loves experimenting with aquatint, rolled colour and wax pencil and is always looking for the ‘happy accident’. The monotype is another favourite medium. As with his etchings Robert’s monotypes often speak of his long association and history in theatre.

Robert is one of the founding members of the Baldessin Press & Studio and helped build the bluestone construction in the 1970’s.
