I am an English artist living in Berkeley. I am self taught and work primarily in collage and mixed media. My work has been exhibited in the USA, Europe, and Asia. I have illustrated book & album covers and my artwork is a part of the 60 Box Art Project in the CIty of Berkeley. I am one of 50 female collage artists to appear in the book “Collage By Women: 50 Essential Contemporary Artists” (2019).

Artist Statement:
I create intricate, hand cut collages which reflect my Victorian obsession with faeries, flora and fauna. From my extensive collection of books, prints and pages that are antique, forgotten and foxed with age I cut out images, categorise them and then eventually piece them together like a complex jigsaw puzzle. My collages are places where beauty is strange, creatures are curious and a sense of wonder prevails.

Recently I have been using cardboard in my work. Saving boxes from the recycling and finding their inner beauty has inspired me to look beyond traditional collage materials and experiment with different surfaces, shapes and textures.
