I am an artist who works mainly in paper, making books and illustrative cut paper pieces. My work has all sorts of sources - I find inspiration in my obsession with British films of the Forties, in poetry, philosophy, science fiction and stories. Visually the imagery I use often comes from nature and the landscape that surrounds me in rural Northumberland. There is usually a considerable conceptual aspect to what I do - but I don’t need it to be obvious to the viewer. I value not only the conceptual but also skill in making and aesthetic qualities.  I use a wide range of processes, often incorporating stitch, painting, hand and machine cutting, drawing, printing and bookbinding in my pieces.
