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.


Following earlier careers in 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. 


In addition to my practice, I run short courses and events at Central St Martins and St Bride Foundation Print Workshop.


I also work as a visiting lecturer at a number of Universities in the UK and run illustration and print workshops with school children of all ages and backgrounds, hopefully developing a confidence and further interest in art, design and written communication.


I can also offer tailor made workshops for design companies in Central London.


My illustration work is represented by The Art Market
