Alejandro spending a week at Homeprint to help me with a serious improvement to the deck/covered yard/storage situation. The open decking with fence and lean-to shelter for storage is well past its used by date! First the careful removal of the structure was required then the repair to the wall of the house. Last step is to design and build a new covered veranda so I can keep my circular saw, work bench etc out of the weather but away from the back door to the studio. Here Alejandro is measuring the beams for the roof.
Married to Allison for 45 years, 3 sons, David, Russell and Paul. I have been primary school teaching in New Zealand for 32 years and for the last 11 years have been developing a Book Art Studio, Library, Art Gallery and substantial warehouse of printmaking equipment and materials. We have a Letterpress Printing and Bookbinding Museum that is a working collection. I have invented an A4 relief printing press and an A3 hydraulic printing press that I manufacture and sell throughout New Zealand with sales into 5 countries overseas. Allison and I have written, illustrated, set, printed, bound and published over 100 titles of artist books.
