Michael is convinced that etchings and lino - prints and wood engravings which are hand made and hand printed using traditional methods have a bright and prosperous future with discerning collectors.

Founded Bracken Press a 'private press' in 1974

Welcome to my website, which shows a selection of my limited edition prints.

I work in three different mediums, etching , lino print, and wood engraving from my home based studio at the bottom of the garden which houses five antique printing presses from the 19th century which I use to create my prints.
