About Mission Creek Press

Mission Creek Press is a small private press established in 1996 to publish my own artistís books and bindings.


The original studio space overlooked the creek behind the old St. Andrewís school† - hence the name. After 15 years, it seemed pointless to make a change, although I do publish my toss-offs under the Desultory Press imprint.


Much of my early client work revolved around paper made at the studio using fibers gathered nearby and I still feel a need to create paper on a regular basis, although itís now made almost exclusively for my own work. I still have images of some of my favorite invitations online here just to share ideas and Iím happy to refer clients to small studios and artists who do very fine work. Iíve also kept some images of the papermaking process online here for informational purposes.


You can see my most current artistís books and bindings here and see a select resume here.


You can also get a peek into my studio practice on the December 11, 2008 episode of Oregon Public Broadcastingís Oregon Art Beat. Itís available to view online at the OPB website.
