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

Artist, sculptor, book artist, paper artist, altered books, mixed media, craft artist

My love affair with books began as a child. Most of us will remember favourite childhood stories and learning to read but for me it was more, books have always been an escape and I used the stories to plunge myself into fantastical, beautiful and safe worlds, far away from reality. As an adult, this interest and escapism has continued but I like to think I have built on that as an artist; I recreate those beautiful narratives in the form of paper and altered book sculptures, an ascension of the written word.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

For me being an artist is partly about survival, it’s a coping mechanism for me and each piece of work is another dose of self-healing, I’m capturing a piece of my soul.
As well as my work baring highly personal connotations, I also aim for them to incite imagination and wonder in those who have forgotten how to embrace the joy of adventure and storytelling or those who have never really found love for the printed word. I want to inspire generations to explore and reminisce in the magic of books!
