I am a artist-printer and designer and began researching and using letterpress in 2002, when I set up the Hi-Artz Press in my back bedroom, which served me well until I quickly outgrew it. I wouldn't describe myself as a Luddite, but I still extensively use this 500+ year old print technology in my work which has been described as a timeless meeting point between graphic design and fine art.
careers in offset litho print, traditional animation, music and design, I studied at Central
St Martins College of Art, during which time I worked as an intern for Hatch Showprint in Nashville, Tennessee (who have been producing show posters since 1879).
I graduated with an MA in Communication Design in 2005. My final show, which featured a set of 16 posters, was described by many as a breath of fresh air in a largely digital environment. Since then, letterpress has gained popularity again worldwide, and is evolving in new and exciting ways.
In addition to my practice, I run short courses and events and have limited editions and digitally reproduced prints on sale, details below.
