I am a self-taught marbler, starting in the mid-seventies when I helped to establish a new bookbinding business and we needed a supply of decorated papers so that a range of stationery – notebooks and photo albums could be developed.
Having attended Marblers’ Gatherings in San Francisco and Gatlingburg Tennessee my style has developed through the intervening years.
Suminagashi marbling brought the discovery of the Oriental artistic philosophy which melds the artist with process.
In recent years I have had the opportunity to develop my experience as teacher, working one-to-one in my own studio and running workshops at The Grange in Shropshire and ffowndri, North Wales
I also undertake very short runs of developmental marbling – working with a set of colours on the size and different hues of paper to create an evolving run of papers for small private press editions.
