Paul Cleden

Paul works as an Illustrator and Printmaker using a number of printmaking techniques throughout his work;  lino multi block / reduction prints, or more recently a more fluid mixture of collograph, monoprint and lino etch. The work of artists such as Michael Rothenstein, Edward Bawden, Cyril Power and Lill Tschudi, have played a vital part in the development of his printmaking.


In his illustration work he concentrate on children’s book illustration, having worked as a freelance artist in London for a number of years after graduating. He has now begun to incorporate his printmaking into his illustration work. Alongside this, he is a writer of children’s fiction - poems, picture books, and novels.
