Giles is our youngest son, at 22 he’s establishing himself as an artist & creative thinker. He completed a BA at Victoria, two years ago & found he had a real passion for design & lateral thinking!

Giles started off carving books, these are 3D representations of images that are revealed when the book is opened. As an unbiased observer I think they are brilliant. From there he also got into ‘Pochoir’ which is an old French term: Pochoir (French: “stencil”), as distinguished from ordinary stenciling, is a highly refined technique of making fine limited editions of stencil prints. It is often called hand colouring, or hand illustration. Quote from Encyclopaedia Brittanica.

He has transformed images of people, & also created some great images such as the ‘Say “No” To Toast’ print, & “Don’t Ignore Buttons.”

We were thinking about how to promote his work, &  realised we have a ready made site here for starters, so please take the time to browse the images, & even better you could get a unique ‘pochoir’ of one or more of your family or friends, or commission a book carving as a special gift for someone, (you can check out some of his work in this category). At the moment Giles is working on an updated version of our brochure, which looks a whole lot more professional than the ones we do, (we literally cut & paste) so if you are wanting a flyer or poster designed, think of him.

You can email Giles at g.speeden@gmail.com or phone him  on 027 346 1148 ….now read on…
