I am fascinated by the everyday, yet extraordinary, beauty of our native wayside and woodland wildflowers, and am driven to create detailed, sculptural flowers and plants using nothing but paper, wire and a little glue.
My art practice is underpinned by a sense of mission, encouraging viewers to look closely, really closely, at our most familiar wildflowers, to experience the wonder of our natural environment, and build an emotional connection to these familiar, native plants. Sustainability in my creative work is of great importance to me. Having a special interest in the origins of colour and pigment I am often found cooking up plant and vegetable matter to create natural dyes, inks and stains for my paper flowers.
