I’m Lainey, a collector of vintage photographs and a creator of photo based art.
Nottingham born and bred, I grew up in a household that adored other peoples old things and their history!
Family outings often saw us in junk shops and we visited local auctions on a regular basis. A love of old books led me to study Fine Bookbinding and Paper Conservation at Guildford Tech in the late 80’s and I later worked for several years as a Paper Conservator.
A love of old photographs has since led me to collage. I still make collages with scissors and glue but I’m moving more towards digital art.
I love Nick Cave, fairgrounds, and any words written by Kazuo Ishiguro and while I love my day job I often dream about running away to the seaside 🙂
