Paper marbling; the art of floating ink on a liquid in order to create patterns which are then lifted off by laying paper on the water/ink surface.


I used to make Turkish marbled paper like those on old endpapers. Highly coloured and often combed, they answered to names such as non-pareil and peacock. The process was controllable so many similar sheets of paper could be produced.

Nowadays I marble paper the Japanese way to produce suminagashi; non-repeatable, simple and elegant designs on paper.

I teach others how to float ink on water too.


My pieces are held in collections including the following;

The Olga Hirsch Collection, The British Library

The Rosamund B. Loring Collection,  Houghton Library, Harvard
