Summary: To say that I am obsessed with Japanese prints would be a great understatement. I live, eat and breathe them. This passionate love affair all began back in 1986, when I was a student. I went on a field trip with a group of fellow students, to Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, and saw a Japanese woodblock print for the first time. It was one of Utamaros, and it was love at first sight. I immediately bought a copy of Jack Hilliers Utamaro: Colour Prints & Paintings, and carried it with me everywhere I went from that day forward. I was immensely fortunate in that not long afterwards, while I was at art school, I met Jack Hillier for the first time. He became my mentor, but more importantly he became a very dear friend. I can't even begin to count the ways in which knowing him impacted, and continues to impact, upon my life. With Jack Hilliers guidance, I began in-depth research into Utamaros woodblock prints. I also began collecting Japanese prints, initially concentrating on book illustrations and then moving on to broadsheets, until I finally worked my way up to Utamaro. Ive always been fascinated by the subjects depicted in Japanese art, and that interest resulted in me writing my first book about Utamaro, Utamaro Revealed: A Guide to Subjects, Themes & Motifs, published in the autumn of 2008. My second book about Utamaro began life as a personal project; there was no complete catalogue of Utamaros works, I needed one, so I decided to make my own. When I declared to Jack Hillier, in 1987, that I wanted to catalogue every single one of Utamaro's prints (which I knew numbered around 2,000), he did not bat an eyelid at the thought of so ambitious (it really was!) a project; he merely suggested that I allow twenty years and then handed me his own personal handwritten notes. The suggested time scale was spot on, and the notes were invaluable. The Complete Woodblock Prints of Kitagawa: A Descriptive Catalogue was published in November, 2009.
