Robert GARNHAM has always lived in Suffolk. After leaving school to study graphic design in Ipswich, distractions of early career building forced me to shelve the practice of fine art but I never lost the appreciation for it. I was very privileged to be part of a varied group of graphic design and illustration students at the Ipswich High Street Art School, some I still see many years later. Being with that creative group revealed how enjoyable the creative process can be. As my career progressed, the introduction of the Apple Computer into the printing industry held my attention, I grew with it. From early basic versions of software to the sophisticated Creative Cloud Industry Standard product we have now, I explored its limits with fascination only to finally tire of it. Iíve found that particular creative process to be a skill, but not a craft. It no longer holds the reward for me. So now as I approach the end of my career, those shelved quiet voices of appreciation that gently whispered, are still too loud and intrusive to ignore. Thankfully they never abandoned me.
