Tim Gresham and Tom Milton also work in the printshop bringing their particular skills to the mix. The Studio both publishes in its own right and works under contract for other pubishers.

The attitude of the studio is collaborative and experimental. The approach to each artist’s work is very adaptable. The means by which the work is made change with the demands of the artist and the image.

Many pieces require the fusion of new and old technologies or more than one printing medium.

Monoprinting or the making of unique prints is at the heart of the activity. Editions emerge from a foundation of experimentation. Nothing is set in stone, there is no house style.

The publishing programme covers the work of both established artists and younger emerging ones. The aim is always to make prints of the highest quality which have energy, self-assurance and exploit the unique potential of the printed image.
