A print-creator of the everyday world around me. Enjoying the combination of photography, linocut and handmade books. I invite you to come and view my memories of exploring this country and perhaps suggest more places for me to visit.
I take photographs everywhere, whether I’m at home, walking in the countryside and coast, or exploring a city. I’m constantly drawn to landscapes, structures, details, and ever-changing light and shadow. My linocuts are based on my own photographs and bring the textures and shapes into a different type of print, allowing me to get my hands dirty. After an intensive course in bookbinding I was inspired to use my photographs as book covers, integrate my love of patterned papers and create handmade books.
