I am a mixed-media artist producing framed work, wall hangings, vessels and other decorative items.

I have developed my own style of papermaking over the past 29 years, using waste-paper pulp, cotton linters and other fibres. I then employ many techniques to achieve my desired result, including impressing, inlay, casting, painting and stitching. Combining the diverse qualities of paper pulp with textile fragments, organic items and found objects, I create delicate and intriguing decorative pieces.

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’m also much inspired by myths and legends and enjoy creating fantasy creatures, fish and other marine life, with scales, spines and trailing tendrils.
