About

my work examines the intersection of my artistic and scientific interests by collecting and cataloging the natural world.

I inaugurated Pie In The Sky Press in 1985 to produce finely crafted limited-edition hand-bound letterpress printed books, broadsides and ephemera.

The fine press editions of poetry produced from 2009 – 2012 offered the opportunity for a high level of craft in execution, plus collaboration and interpretation that is both exciting and challenging.

Like the self-taught naturalists of the Victorian era, my recent work examines the intersection of my artistic and scientific interests by collecting and cataloging the natural world. I am inspired to record, interpret and celebrate nature.

Books are my artistic passion and medium, and explore the intersection of many disciplines such as graphic design, typography, printing, paper craft, image making and the traditional craft of bookbinding. The medium can stimulate cultural dialogue; involve community building and collaborative practice, integrating experimentation with technical, traditional and conceptual considerations.
