Intaglio / Lino / Wood engraving/ Letterpress


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.

There are two workshops, one solely for Lino, wood engraving and letterpress

which house the three antique platen presses from 1845,1869 & 1889.

Another workshop at the bottom of the garden is used soley for etching and engraving.
