I have spent almost 30 years in the commercial printing industry during which time I worked with many of the leading UK and US publishers of art books. My day job was involved with the latest printing technology. In contrast my leisure time hobby was with traditional hand printing techniques. I like to combine different techniques eg etching and collagraph, digital and linocuts. I have been extremely fortunate in having had some inspiring teachers and mentors.

Painter, print maker, collector, picture framer, restorer, Photoshop artist. I spent 25 years in the printing and publishing industry, most of them with the great Mondadori in Italy. I had the privilege of working with many of the best British and American publishers to produce beautiful “coffee table” art books. It was in Italy that I began to soak up the culture of art.
Whilst my day job involved the latest and best printing technology, in my spare time I was fascinated by the low-tech printing processes of block printing, etching and silk-screen printing.

12 years ago I felt like a big change and so opened a picture framing workshop and small gallery on Wimbledon Broadway, modelled on some of the beautiful framing shops I had used in Italy. That was a fascinating and satisfying time, working with many artists to frame their work to the best effect.
Having a small gallery in the shop also gave me an outlet for my own creative output. But there was one big problem: - time! I was too busy framing to have time for my own painting and printing.

But now they have pulled down my shop to make room for a new Safeway store. So instead of opening a new high street shop I have decided to try the internet. I am a member of the British Fine Art Trade Guild
