give you an overview:
A great deal of my current work, but not all of it, is inspired by my
locality, especially Morecambe Bay.
work is often based on my love of and concern for the natural
environment, while at the same time acknowledging the realities of the
modern world, and I want to share both these
aspects with others. In my less serious works, I hope to encourage
playfulness and curiosity by the unfamiliar nature of the binding
methods. Exploration of the craft of artists' books is as fundamental
to my practice as the themes I choose.
