PLACE OF STUDY: Kingston College of Art (Dip AD (hons) Fine Art; Studio of Martin Dieterle,Paris; Bookbinding under tutorage of George Miller

COLLECTIONS: The British Library; Ashmolean Museum; numerous private collections

STATEMENT: Primarily a wood engraver, the medium of artists' books has presented me with many possibilities in terms of narrative and technique, in original pieces and in collaboration with authors. I am also interested in exploring the interface between traditional and digital printing techniques.
