Statement

I am a maker: I enjoy the hands on, hand made feel to my work, whether this be cutting lino for printmaking or forming paper from various pulps. I find inspiration from my immediate environment although I am very aware of the space that one enters whilst in the creative process and the elements that this brings to my work.
The effect of moving into a new studio has lead me to use some time to revise and have a renewal of my ideas of my work.
