How did you become involved in artist’s books?

I started making artist’s books because of my concern for the planet. I wanted to create things that were smaller and more portable whilst still maintaining my artist practice. This included making one-off books of drawings, books out of found materials and collaborative books with others. 

What is the focus of your practice?

I am interested in time and it’s impact on our lives and our relationship with the environment.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m currently between projects so now is a time of reflection and review. This is a great time for new opportunities to arise and to try new things out.
