Based in a studio in the heart of rural Northumberland, I make artist’s books and work in cut paper, taking inspiration from the countryside around me. Much of my work begins with text, often incorporating snippets of poetry and stories.
I handmake all my pieces, from unique, large-scale sculptural pieces which are entirely hand-cut and bound, to small editions and multiples, where I combine machine-cutting in my studio with handmaking and finishing. I often work to commission producing bespoke books and one-off papercut pieces for special occasions.

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.
