My Year in Books becomes Another Chapter at Scarthin Books


For a period of two years I was fortunate to be artist in residence at this unique bookshop in Cromford. Regular visits to the bookshop provided me with a wealth of experiences and opportunities to create a range of digital outcomes based upon the interior, exterior, staff, customers and visiting writers.

I deliberately focused on working on my iPad using Brushes XP as a means of developing my creative and technical skills and for purely practical reasons, as the two years coincided with a period of significant house renovations and being without a work space.

My connection with Scarthin Books will continue for the foreseeable future, as I begin a period developing my work using a range of print processes and putting my new printing press through its paces.
