This Patreon has been set up so that people who like my work can acquire some pieces at a reasonable price and also for people who are looking to add to their collection of original prints.
Manually produced silkscreen prints produce an individual quality and richness of colour that is simply unachievable on a digital desktop printer.
It was very early in my formal art education when I learned to screen print. I spent many hours cutting two or three stencils out of newsprint to do a three colour fuchsia. Did it work? Let’s say “in principle”,but I may have been able to print three before the stencil got covered in paint and there was no way to click ‘Undo’.
While other methods of producing work took my attention away for some time, that desire for those flat rich colours never disappeared. Ten years ago, I came back to Toulouse and became close with other artists who were making silkscreen printing cool again. Taking the art of the poster, simplifying your image and making those colours jump.

I was hooked once again on the sharp pull of that rubber squeegee over the screen, the need for the steady hand and the final lift of the screen off of the paper. There, on the table that image you had in your head moments before has just taken shape. There is nearly a magic quality to the process.

Most recently, silkscreen printing in different studios has allowed me to meet some great people inToulouse, London and Buenos Aires. Now I am using it as a means to get the sketches out of the sketchbooks and to allow people to build up their own collection.

Become part of the process, trying to get out of the sketchbook and make creation a conversation. I want to know what you think.

Tapisserie

As well as being kept up to date, getting digital copies of the prints, at the end of the year, you will get a roll of wallpaper with all the prints.

Portraits

Every three months you'll get three portraits from my travels. These images are produced using a screenprinting technique that allows me to reproduce the sketches with the colours that I mix up myself.

Portraits for me and a friend

Every three months you'll get six portraits from my travels. These images are produced using a screenprinting technique that allows me to reproduce the sketches with the colours that I mix up myself.
