Using old and recycled materials I try to capture the detail and beauty found in nature. My work is influenced by plants, insects and found objects which I recreate in paper and arrange carefully into collections and dioramas. I like to evoke the sense of nostalgia and curiosity I get from studying nature and creating the items I make, and I love to highlight the small, hidden and overlooked details of the natural world.
I graduated in 2006 with a BA(Hons) in Graphic Design where I focused on book making and print. This started my relationship with paper and led me to develop some of the skills I use in my sculptures today. I now work from my home studio in the Welsh Borders where I am lucky enough to find all sorts of inspiration right on my door step!
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
