We’re husband and wife team Gary and Heather. Gary’s style and technique, whether using a single plate or multiple colour plates, is to capture the finest detail – not in the photographic sense but one step removed from the identical representation, to capture every detail but through a muted lens.
Heather’s print style takes inspiration from all things natural, especially favourite landscapes and the soft shapes of flowers. I try to capture the soft strokes of the water colourist in my printmaking.
We’ve known each other from school days and the very first time we worked together was in a restaurant in the school holidays – Gary worked in the kitchen while I waitressed. After college we met up again by chance. I was working as head of a busy theatre publicity department and offered Gary some design work. Gary was working as head designer and manager of a design studio and printing unit in Germany. I moved out there to work in the design department, so again we found ourselves working together.
We eventually moved back to UK, where we started our own design studio in York, which proved very successful. We had various national and international clients, including a number of York’s museums and theatres, Nestlé and the UK Benefits Agency. After so long working with deadlines, we decided we needed a change and that’s how Little Ram Studio came about.
We both do the same work in the studio, although Gary does do all the photo work while I concentrate on the marketing side of things. It’s playing to our strengths really, as part of Gary’s degree was in photography (plus art and design), while I studied marketing and design.
