I started printing at school, many years ago, then spent two years at the London College of Printing in the late seventies, and I've been printing ever since. My printed works are huge text-heavy posters, either copying ones that were printed many years ago, or using the old technology and design to convey modern-day messages. Commissions are taken for celebratory posters - weddings, birthdays, retirements &c
