Sole Bay Inn, Southwold

I am a printmaker and photographer born in London but at home by the sea. I have lived into East Anglia for many years, where the coast, the wildlife and coastal activities have been the focus of many of my prints and photographs.

I became fascinated by bookbinding while I studied as a mature student for first a degree and then a Masters in Fine Art at Norwich School Of Art And Design (now NUCA).

I love the wildlife that lives in or visits a large (and largely untamed!) garden near to the sea and close to where I am lucky to have a studio housing my large Albion platen press, and a Star Wheel cylinder press, both made in the 1850’s.

My work is mainly handbound sketch/notebooks covered with calico on which I print various lino cuts of local scenes of Suffolk, the books are covered front and back with the images. I have recently added some new illustrations to my books for instance an image inspired by a visit to the Local Suffolk Punch Trust.

I also work to commission.
