David Bull

David became involved with woodblock printmaking after seeing Japanese prints in a small gallery in Toronto back in 1980. Since moving to Japan in 1986 he has lived in Tokyo, where he now makes his living as a printmaker. Always quick to interject "I am not an artist!" he considers himself a 'craftsman' - as if there were really any difference ...

His personal web site is here.

Mr. Matthew Brown

Matt is a woodblock printmaker living and working in rural New England. He is also an active 'campaigner' for this craft, teaching and writing about woodblock printmaking wherever and whenever he can.

Mr. Mike Spollen

I'm not able to tell you much about Mike yet, because I don't even know where he lives (other than that it is on a pretty funky old farm somewhere ...) But if you visit his web site, in which he shows many of his prints and paintings, you'll perhaps start to get an idea of what he is like ...

Mr. James Mundie

For James, work on his incredibly detailed prints is an opportunity for "twiddling, futzing, and whatnot". At present somewhat unsure as to whether he is a printmaker or a painter, Jim lives in Philadelphia with his patient wife Kate.
