work in progress

A good story collapses time, and weaves together fragmented voices with contemporary images that fire imaginations and evoke strong feelings. Book art adds that exciting dimension to storytelling for me, and allows me to combine language and emotion, with texture and structure

I use traditional bookbinding and book making techniques to develop unique ways of binding my own stories into 'books'. My stories are influenced by nature and life's rich tapestry - the delicate threads that bind us to each other, and shape our affinity for space and place. I work with natural, found objects, mainly wood, bark and feathers, and I incorporate modern materials, such as silver wire.
