Here at Salmon Jam Press, Cassie, Moss and I are never far from our source of inspiration: the trees and rivers of Northumberland.
I am an artist printmaker, creating wood prints, wood engravings, woodcuts and letterpress from my musings on the river bank, and often in the river itself.
I try to stay true to nature and my wonder at what we find.
Great value for original hand printed pieces of work.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy what you find.
Salmon Jam Press will be exhibiting at this event in April!

"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. I do not want art for a few any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few."
"the use of woodcuts will know no end, so long as the importance of printing is duly appreciated and the liberty of the press held sacred. "
Thomas Bewick Wood Engraver 1753-1828
