I’m an artist working in print media, artist’s books and making silver jewellery.  I’m interested in analogue photographic printing methods such as Cyanotype and Argyrotype, placing objects (eg, leaves, stems, and found images) directly on photo-sensitised paper and fabric to make unique images. I make concertina books which take time to cut fold and stitch or glue together. The books also take the reader time to view as they turn the pages or walk around and along them on a shelf. Links between these media are fascinating and include: texture from plants and fabrics, embossing, folding, using photographic images in jewellery making, and imprinting. I like the idea of using art to look deeper and further into everyday things and the environment around us.
