I spent 25 years in the printing and publishing industry, most of them with the great Mondadori in Italy. I had the privilege of working with many of the best British and American publishers to produce beautiful “coffee table” art books. It was in Italy that I began to soak up the culture of art.
Whilst my day job involved the latest and best printing technology, in my spare time I was fascinated by the low-tech printing processes of block printing, etching and silk-screen printing.

12 years ago I felt like a big change and so opened a picture framing workshop and small gallery on Wimbledon Broadway, modelled on some of the beautiful framing shops I had used in Italy. That was a fascinating and satisfying time, working with many artists to frame their work to the best effect.
Having a small gallery in the shop also gave me an outlet for my own creative output. But there was one big problem: - time! I was too busy framing to have time for my own painting and printing.
But now I have discovered Imagekind!
