I combine materials such as recycled paper pulps with textiles, organic items or found ephemera to create delicate and intriguing decorative works that appear timeworn and fragile. I use a variety of techniques including casting, inlay, impressing, painting and stitching. I have always loved the tactile qualities in the surface and texture of handmade paper. I'm drawn to its imperfections and fragility and have worked for many years exploring these attributes. A deep fascination with fossils and relics is apparent in much of my work - I distress and manipulate many of my creations until they appear reminiscent of archaeological finds or ancient treasures. I am also very much inspired by myths and legends and love creating fantasy creatures, fish and other marine life with scales, spines and trailing tendrils.
I am a member of the Leicester Society of Artists, Visualise Textile Group and Lutterworth Stitchers Group.
