Papermaking

I make handmade papers. I use a lot of different materials, and I have over 150 different recipes to incorporate a range of colour, texture, and content. I make pulp from recycled papers, virgin wood fibre, recycled rags, cotton linters and home grown plant fibres. The papers are decorated with flowers, herbs, grasses, seeds, cotton threads, wool, and silk. I use natural and sythetic dyes to colour my paper.  I make paper in A5 and A4 formats. Other sizes are available on commission. I also create artwork in handmade papers which are colourful, patterned, and textured with a variety of materials.

Printmaking

I was trained as a printmaking, specialising in woodblock printmaking. I make limited edition woodcuts using hand carved woodblocks,
printed  in black /white, and in  colour. I often use watercolours to hand paint my woodcuts.I have produced a series of woodcut greeting cards, too.
All of my prints have been exhibited widely, and have been sent to many countries around the world.
