About

My interest in printing developed by chance when I discovered an advertisement for Leicester Print Workshop while attending a course on fabric decoration. I signed up for an 'Introduction to Print' and was hooked.

Many years later my parents kindly bought me my printing press and the process of converting the attic of my family home into a studio began.

My printing time is limited as I have a full time job helping to run a busy retail design agency in Leicester. It's often difficult to juggle the creative demands of work and home and still make space to inhabit my own creative world.

When I do escape I disappear into the realms of ink and paper and scrim and extender and radio 4, which provides the backdrop to many of my print editions.

All my prints are original artworks created using safe wash inks and a hand cranked printing press. Because each print is made by inking and wiping the plate by hand, no two prints are exactly the same.

My Collagraph plates are made from collages of card, paper, plastic and sometimes plant and other materials. They are extremely delicate and only a small number of impressions can be made before the plate deteriorates.

My Drypoint plates are either copper or Styrolux which is then worked into by hand. Again a Drypoint line deteriorates rapidly so only a small number of prints can be taken.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

All inks used (unless otherwise indicated) have a standard light fast reading of BWS 6-8. As with any original artwork, strong sunlight will fade the colours over time. To keep your print in good condition please choose a hanging position out of direct sunlight. All prints are supplied unframed. If displaying under glass, please use a mount to ensure the glass does not touch the surface of the print. This will ensure that the embossed nature of the print is retained

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items (except greeting cards*) are carefully wrapped in tissue paper and put into a plastic wallet before being packed in a hard backed envelope for posting. Great care is taken to ensure everything arrives in perfect condition. * Greetings cards are packed with their envelope in a clear sleeve and then into a hard backed envelope.

Gift wrapping is not provided but please ask if you have a specific requirement!

Sizing details

All sizes quoted are for the printed area of paper and do not include the unprinted border.
