I have been making and exhibiting artists’ books, multiples, prints and mixed media since completing a degree Ba (Hons) Print Media Book Arts & Craft in 2001. My work is held in private and public collections.
I make books and prints about the everyday world around me; the everyday that stops me, makes me wonder and take the time to stand and stare. The work I create is inspired by the natural/urban environment and our human relationship with it. I want the reader of my work to feel that indefinable ‘lifting’ of the spirit that you get when experiencing beauty. There is nothing that can compare to getting your hands dirty and usually making a big mess. Sometimes though, it works. And there you have it – something that exists in its own right, something with a life of its own, something that does something to you.
