The artist states that he made and bound his first book at the age of twelve. Later at Leicester Polytechnic he was influenced by the artist and maker of books - Rigby Graham. He further states that he has always seen the making of books and the combination of text and image as progressive art form where the combination of audience and reader may participate in the story. Stories are an important part of all his work where it is in painting, printmaking or making books.
