“I work with my hands, drawing and painting, and where possible, like to use printmaking methods to realise a project. I create and produce my own books, working sequentially to produce narratives exploring themes grown from small observations, true stories, personal encounters and my environment. I aim to rouse the imagination of the reader with my narratives, and ensure that the design and form of the final piece enhances the intimate experience of reading and looking.”

“I also work on single images, prints, shorter projects and commissioned illustrations. I am keen on type, and have a small letterpress studio where I produce limited edition prints, posters and other printed ephemera.”
