During this past year making work has been a real challenge not least because being creative in isolation is like working in the dark… but it did give time…lots of time.

One of the pieces I made was for the Oxford Guild of Printers to distribute to the members.

Backlash

I created a book…Backlash in response to the killing of George Floyd. The title comes from the Backlash Blues sung by Nina Simone.

It was originally a poem by Langston Hughes who was a writer, playwright and poet at the heart of the Harlem renaissance during the 1960s.
