Fragility and Strength

        

I'm a mixed media artist working with delicate materials, thin filmy layers of paper and silk, sometimes eco printed, that become resilient when exposed to the encaustic or felting process. I love this paradox. I build up layers including monotype and photographic prints, fibres and coloured inks.

 

Nature inspires me. I enjoy making images that evolve as one looks at them, ... sparking associations that develop and deepen. I combine elements that wouldn't normally be seen together, creating a new entity which is meaningful to me.

Recently, I've been working with Joomchi, sometimes turning my hand made paper into vessels. During lockdown I felted pebble shapes as well as vessels out of wool, silk and mulberry paper.
