Traditional techniques, processes and experimentation are at the core of my practice coupled with ecological concerns. Nature and environment are a continual inspiration which informs projects and collections.
‘Lifeloom’ is a term I use to describe the narrative quality of my work producing artworks in paper, wool coupled with found and discarded objects. ‘Lifeloom’ represents locally sourced, re-cycled & re-purposed materials created in the mediums of Artist Books and Limited Edition Fine Art Prints weaving layers of image, process and story bound with inheritance skills and 1940’s utility ethos.
BELONG was initially a paper based collection continuing with the Cherish project; which focuses my belief in cherishing our immediate and wider environment. I was recently very stirred by a visit to Staffordshire Arboretum Memorial, specifically the newly installed WWI Trench. My grandfather fought this war, so once again I pay homage to him and all those who experience a personal war.
