Artist Statement

Since graduating from University in 2005 I've continued to develop my work from my studio in Staffordshire, UK.

I produce unique prints, jewellery and paper sculptures, all of which are inspired by natural history, museum collections and Victorian book engravings. I've always been a collector of unusual things, most of which can be found in my studio. While some items hold sentimental attachments, others I've purchased can be quite peculiar and macabre. A large part of my collection is a library of old books full of engravings and woodcuts.

Combining images sourced from my book collection with antique papers carefully sourced and purchased, together with my passion for print, my work embraces my inspirations.
