Mike Clements is a fine art printmaker and book artist working at the Sidney Nolan Trust near Presteigne in the Border Marches, the area where Wales & England join. His ideas come from close observation of the world around him, often focusing
on quirky aspects of life that Mike hopes will strike a resonant chord with readers/viewers.
Mike demonstrates and sells his artist's books regulary at artists book fairs, including recently The Small Publishes Fair, London; and at the Mancheste and
Liverpool artists' book events.
Mike's artist’s books are in public and private collections in Europe, Australia and North America, including the Tate Gallery London, Yale Centre for British Art, the Minnesota Centre for the Book and Glasgow,
Manchester Metropolitan, UWE & Oxford Brookes Universities, and Arts University Bournemouth. He was, for many years, printmaking tutor at the Sidney Nolan Trust, www.sidneynolantrust.org and
is a member of the Marches Book Arts Group, www.marchesbookartsgroup.co.uk/mike-clements.
