'My passion lies within the field of collecting and I am continually stimulated by the environment that surrounds me. I want my bindings to be appreciated for their relation to the content of the book inside, whilst creating a tactile object to be handled and used.'
'I look to utilise materials and techniques traditionally used in bookbinding, such as leather, paper, gold leaf and gold tooling. Due to my crafts background I am also keen to incorporate alternative skills into my work including metalwork, textiles, printmaking and woodwork. I like playing with colours and textures and creating depth on covers through the use of embroidery, I am also keen to integrate found objects and images into my binding work.'
