Turner, Landscape painter; Georges Braque, Cubisim & Joseph Bouys.I discovered the art of paper-making in the studio of Maureen Richardson many years before studying at art college. Developing my own methodology and work practise based on conceptual ideas around the polarisation of human kinds relationship with nature. I work in nature with nature and create a dialogue between myself and the natural environment.
Combining traditional and modern techniques and materials. I often use plants fibres growing on my land I grow Kozo to harvest as the base for mixing with other fibres and natural materials ; pigments, earth, and sand.I choose the fibre or medium for the particular concept.
