As Nothing Ends Well

How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I tell stories with images and text. I delight in combining content with relevant sculptural form. To create narrative, artists' books have many advantages, most obviously multiple pages.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Giving a purpose to life and communicating with others. I love showing my artists' books and get a real buzz when a public collection buys my work.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Artists' Books and printmaking. My ideas come from close observation of the world around, often focusing on quirky aspects of life. My artist’s books are in public and private collections in Europe, Australia and North America, including the Tate Gallery London, Bodleian Library Oxford, Yale Center for British Art, and Manchester Metropolitan, UWE, Cardiff Metropolitan & Oxford Brookes Universities, and Arts University Bournemouth. Formerly printmaking tutor at the Sidney Nolan Trust.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I have run literally hundreds of printmaking workshops at the Sidney Nolan Trust and continue now teaching artists' book techniques, including online workshops.
