About Me

Pale Ire Press is the home of the printmaking, collage and paintings of Dr Jackie Batey

My main practice is the creation of artist's books under the name DAMP FLAT BOOKS and my serial zine FUTURE FANTASTEEK! This blog is where I put everything else, work in progress, ideas and experiments. This is where archive my single-images and image sequences. Some of these images may find their way into my books and zines but others will live here waiting for me to find them a home.

I love printing, collage and felt pens. I like art that smells inky and the paper feels good to touch. I know it's been a creative day if I have pen on my fingers and my desk is a mess.
