Statement

创作声明

 

Most of my wood engravings are illustrations for books.  I have illustrated a number of books for The Folio Society including classics such as ‘The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn’ by Mark Twain, ‘Frankenstein’ by Mary Shelley, ‘Brideshead Revisited’ by Evelyn Waugh and I am currently working on wood engravings for a collection of short stories by Fyodor Dostoevsky. I have worked as a designer for The Royal Mint and work as a letter cutter and maker of headstones and memorials.

我的大部分木口木刻作品都是书籍插图。 我曾为对开本协会的许多书籍绘制插图,包括马克-吐温的《哈克贝利-费恩历险记》,玛丽-雪莱的《弗兰肯斯坦》,伊夫林-沃的《旧地重游》等。目前我正在为陀思妥耶夫斯基的短篇小说集插图进行木口木刻的创作。我也担任皇家造币厂的设计师,也是墓碑及纪念碑的文字雕刻者。
