I make sculptural pieces constructed from wire, pages from books, paper mache and cotton rag papers.
The inspiration for my work comes from my fascination and absolute love of the natural world and all its glorious flora and fauna.
I use various self-taught techniques to describe and build character to my chosen subjects. I hand paint ink onto the cotton rag papers and pages to help bring life and vibrancy to each and every piece.
It’s the potential of paper and what it might be able to become which sparks my imagination. I find the delicate yet strong characteristics of paper make it an interesting and versatile material to work with.
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.
