Ryley rang to ask if her friends artwork could be produced as a plate and printed on to a large piece of heavy art paper. I created a solarplate from the negative of the art work. Careful mixing of the salmon and light grey colours followed by masking and printing the plate in the middle of the A2 sheet of Incisioni 320gsm. ( this example is the proof, the final copy was sharper and colours more accurate.)
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.
