Artist Statement

I am a multi-media artist based in Bristol.  I have recently completed an MA in multi-disciplinary printmaking at UWE.

My work is a walk through the woods, even when you find yourself in the city. I like to discover dull and forgotten things – a rusty bottle cap, a muddy feather, a piece of string. I take and tend to these foraged things; binding, stitching, printing, whittling, weaving, tearing and mending. I use slow, low tech, folk craft methods.  For me these processes are as much a part of the beauty and enjoyment of the work as the finished pieces themselves. Because, in being seen, touched and chosen, everyday objects can become totems and talismans. As each piece is taken, curated and carefully grouped it attains a new status, tiny tokens that only show their impact when viewed all together.
