About

Keeping it Semple

I'm a letterpress printer working from a print shed at the bottom of my garden in north Devon. I make artist's books and print ephemera (like postcards, posters and cards), which often explores using type as image.

Letterpress printing gives me freedom from the screen (I'm a graphic designer by day) so in my own work I'm strictly analogue: wood and metal type only... plus some lino and the occasional found object (bubble wrap prints surprisingly well for example!). This means that if I don't have some type in a certain size to fit just that space... then I need to find some other type that will, or come up with another idea altogether. Often the workaround to find a solution means I end up with an outcome I could never have imagined, which is usually much more interesting.
