This is the new blogsite for my Artists Books - I am the Press and the Press, c'est moi.
It's a full time job, although I also manage to squeeze in teaching an evening class in printmaking at the Paddock Studios in Lewes and occasional Book Art classes at Brighton Independent Printmaking.
In due course I hope to show here images of books I am working on, past editions and details of those still available. Also details of my one-offs and installations and other artwork.
I work with books as an artist and there are often images from the books available for sale as limited edition prints.
Here are some of the places where I will be exhibiting my work in 2007:
'Covered' at the Works on Paper Fair, Burlington House ( Burlington Gdns entrance)

It's a busy year, so it may take a couple of weeks for me to get the images on this site......
