Neil Walker (aka Neelzexpressionz)

Born in Cumbria, I grew up in Swaziland and South Africa. Having lived in the South East England for just over the last decade, I am returning to my Cumbria roots here in the Eden Valley. I am a mixed media artist with a passion for designing, making and of course, using, sketchbooks and journals. Most books start out with one of my original laser cut designs which, when put together, become the canvas for my creative expression. Each book is embellished, painted and finished using a variety of mediums before the pages are added to create an individual and original book. I love the idea that my books continue their artistic journey by someone else adding their own creativity to the book.
In addition to my art books I work in pen and ink creating both abstract and semi realistic imagery both for art stamps and prints, needle felting too. I am happy to teach bookmaking and mixed media technique classes, To be honest, if it's creative I am interested in learning, exploring and experimenting.
