About Me

I create collages and artists books combining my love of layering, playing with paper, painting, and photography.

I studied Fine Bookbinding and Paper Conservation at Guildford Tech in the eighties. Whilst there I did my work experience at Sotheby’s and since college I worked for several years at Derrys in Nottingham working on books for the British Library.

If you are one of the lovely people that’s been following me for a while you’ll know this blog has had several incarnations.  Several ideas.  Loads of posts lovingly created and then deleted in the blink of an eye.

So my challenge this year is to produce more art,  build up this blog, try to stay inspired, and live the creative life I’ve always dreamed of.

    I have just gotten back to having time to read blogs again. Missed yours! Oddly, coming in I landed on the about page and did not know you were a bookbinder. I have made loads of paper in my time and now am moving into binding my own journals. So we have conservation, bookbinding and papermaking all in common — oh and that little thing called artist. Glad to see you posting again!
