In my studio I make paper by hand from nature. I use this paper to explore the personal or collective narrative of specific places in nature. When I immerse myself and am still in these places, I often experience the solace they offer. Through my artwork I wish to share the value of this experience with others. Guided by the intrinsic characteristics of the finished paper, I paint and sculpt with the paper pulp. I also use photographic images, water colour, printing, stitching and collage.
