Ed Boxall is an artist, writer and creative educator living in Hastings, England. He works in many areas such as printmaking, small scale book publishing, poetry, storytelling, songwriting and education.
Ed self publishes his visual books as The Pearbox Press. The first Pearbox books 'The Storm Tree Stories' were published in 2006. Books in the series such as The Shell Collector take childhood rural holidays as a starting point but mix dream and reality freely. More recently his writing has focussed on children's poems. The books are a labour of love; an attempt to make enchanting visual poetry for both adults and children and he loves to perform his stories and poems.
Ed likes getting his hands dirty printmaking and making his own handmade prints, using techniques such as woodblocks, lino and mono printing. The books and prints are available at various galleries and shops in the UK such as The Towner, The De La Warr Pavilion and The Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
