I’m a printmaker, sculptor and creator of artist books and textiles. I prefer to use recycled materials. Recently I’ve taken an interest in recycled electronic waste and commercial packaging. Often my work is inspired by relationships, community events, found materials, seascapes and/or landscapes. The patterns of landscape, seascape and geographical features influence my work I like collections of objects, boxes and colour. I also create very small pen drawings. My bus top books continue to grow with simple line drawings recording my various surroundings or waiting times.
