How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I create detailed and life-sized sculptures of plants and insects. I curate collections and installations which aim to document different species and our experiences of them and the natural world. I create the sculptures using recycled and discarded papers, wire and other reclaimed materials which are carved, cut, shaped and sometimes embroidered to bring the sculptures to life.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I describe myself as a Sculptor or paper artist.
