ABOUT THE WORK
My Design work frequently incorporates illustration. I have particular an interest in pattern design and letterpress printed packaging which I produce via my private press Panthera Press.
The Illustration gallery features a mix of traditional book illustration and conceptual paintings/sculpture. In spite of the variety of media, I consider all of the work narrative and thus – Illustration.
The Book Arts gallery features book binding, gilding, and various forms of printmaking. My primary print focus is letterpress printing but I also have experience with relief printing and lithography.
I CONSIDER MYSELF a book maker, pressman, designer, illustrator, and print maker. My main interest lies in preserving the technical skills and long held beliefs in both design and image making through re-invention. I have a fondness for collecting antiques, old books, and mysterious, discarded objects. That may be what has led me to become a letterpress printer and book maker. My private press, Panthera Press, has become the focal point where my skills in image making, typography, and craft come together in one practice. Now I strive to teach others and am always seeking opportunities to pass on knowledge of the book arts.
