Amy Kern is carving the third cut on the lino for her 'little house' print. During her 4 days here at Homeprint Amy worked like crazy to complete a wonderful set of images using a variety of mediums. Letterpress card with border, three colour lino print, relief solarplate using a drawing on ground glass, intaglio print from a painting on ground glass and sewing and 'casing in' a number of journals for me and one for herself. 'Blue Tape Design' is Amy's great blog, worth a look.
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.
