My work combines printmaking (collagraphy, wood engraving, Letterpress and Lino cuts) with upcycled or vintage materials (packaging, maps and nautical charts) to create artist’s books that intrigue and entertain.
I design each book as a whole; the structure and content are always developed together. I like to adapt structures to make sculptural, experiential books.
My work focuses especially on how time spent by water nurtures happiness. I explore our relationships with “blue spaces”; rivers, lakes, the sea, ice. Our impact on the environment and celebrating Scotland’s unique colours and light inspire my pieces.
