I am a mixed media artist and maker based in Doncaster, South Yorkshire.  I work from my small home studio, creating mostly collage and textile based work.  I like to use vintage ephemera, old books, used and worn textiles, found objects and humble, recycled materials in my work.  This is partly due to wanting to have a low impact on the environment in my work, but also because I love the time worn qualities and imagined stories that these materials hold.  My work usually has a narrative and is often autobiographical and deeply personal in nature.  Recurrent themes in my work are: memories, traces, nature and the essence of a time or place.
