little bits of printy things

Mixed Media

As a lover of story, print, textiles and graphics, my works are engineered from paper and mixed media. My home is a treasure trove of found and pre-loved materials waiting to be used together with a wide selection of collected lettering as I love a ‘printer’s pie’ of type (old printmaking slang for jumbled, unsorted letters!) I make everything myself using traditional bookbinding, assemblage, sewing, collage and print. I draw on vintage texts, rhymes and sayings to produce collections of bookworks, larger paper characters, collages, illustrations, prints and keepsakes. Often described as quirky and amusing, my work brings connection to memories..
