How did you become involved in artists books ?

I first found out about artists books whilst I was doing my Master’s in Fine Art at Leeds. My lecturer, Chris Taylor, showed us a range of books as part of a group session and then encouraged us to come along to the Book Fair.  I was so inspired by everything that I saw that I started to experiment with books in my own work.

  • What is the main focus of your practice?

My practice is focused on the unnoticed or unseen details in the world around me, working with different folding techniques, printmaking and paper cutting .  I have created work looking at chewing gum on a pavement, overheard conversations and lichen on the park fence.

  • What are you working on at the moment?

I am currently working on a piece about mastitis, I have been on maternity leave for a year and have had a lot of trouble with blocked ducts and mastitis so am trying to make a piece to show this unseen pain that some mothers have to go through.
