As well as designing cards and other products I create books and prints based on my love of old things and archiving. I am passionate about old paper ephemera, whether a postcard, scribbled note or printed receipt. It is not only the content that I find intriguing, but everything from the shape, colour, texture and typography.
I am an avid collector of all sorts of things and am often drawn to old postcards, not for the images on the front but rather the messages on the back, sometimes mundane but more often than not a fascinating snippet of somebody else’s life. All of these things find their way into my fine art whether it be in a series of prints or in an artist's book.
I work in lots of different media including - drypoint, polyester plate lithography, screen printing, digital printing, collagraph and simple old pen and paint!
