Full CV

Statement   "I have been making one-off books since 1996, and started Hafod Press in 2003 making limited editions of digitally printed books.  This has enabled me to use photographic images and text and has widened my visual language and communication. 

As an artist involved primarily with painting, I make maybe one or two books a year.   My books fall into two categories: my travel books and those that relate to the ideas and images I explore in my paintings.  For me a book is a distillation of an experience or concept, often with an element of recording something that will never exist or happen again."
