MASTERCLASS ARTIST TUTOR
Making books and teaching people how to make them is the main focus of my work. I find teaching very rewarding and derive great satisfaction from watching others make their own individual and personal books. I love experimenting and use many unorthodox methods to construct and decorate the books I make. I gain great pleasure from the fact that I have made the complete book.
I recycle as many things as possible and start with very cheap and unpromising materials and strive to turn them into something of worth.
Though I do use machine embroidery, mostly for practical reasons, to stitch background layers together or to work on outlines, it is hand stitching I love the most. Feeling the fabric and thread as I stitch connects me with my work more than any other process. I find, no matter how much I experiment, my work always ends up being a book. FULLY BOOKED!
