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

The pieces I create are spare and minimal, informed by a process of allowing the materials to interact with one another.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

The essence of suminagashi is spontaneity with the process led by the materials and the weather of the day, both inner and outer. This practice allows me to express things I cannot put into words.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am a suminagashi artist, creating unique monoprints using the ancient technique of Japanese paper marbling.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I make large pieces of suminagashi on paper and washi mainly using black ink. I use Tosa washi to create unique lampshades. I also create suminagashi monoprints which are abstract and minimal in design.
I have taught several workshops at Westhope and have run a few of my own in South Shropshire.
