About Me…
Not a lot to say that isn’t shown in the pictures. I make Woodblock images and relief prints. I’m teaching myself everything I know from old dusty books. I’m holed up in my little town of Brisbane, Australia and I am getting a large amount of satisfaction and enjoyment from learning this form of art. I still have a lot to learn but… patience has been the first lesson. In regards to my history or CV? I don’t have one. I have no background in art. I took photos as a hobby for a few years in the first half of the decade and almost by accident, did my first woodblock carving (on a skateboard no less) in May 2008. In July 2008 I tried my second woodblock, fell in love with the medium and haven’t stopped to look back. I had my first solo art show in July 2009 and am currently experimenting with whatever comes to mind.

If you feel like dropping me a line, enquiring about purchasing one of my woodcut prints or you just want to ask me a question about what I do – then please feel free to email me at alexandeverything (@) gmail.com

  1. Hi Alex. I love your stuff! I used to write for Scorch magazine back in the day. It’s great that you have such fond memories of it. David Barker used to write a lot too and as you probably know, it was put together by Paul Curtis, who still runs Valve Records and manages Regurgitator. It was his artwork on the cover and throughout. I still have original copies of every issue we printed. All the best!
