Artist's Statement

I look for surfaces with a voice, a past life and that’s what attracts me. I like when a surface shows you that time doesn’t stop. Usually discarded I embrace these objects as well as their surfaces already filled with life’s marks. I feed off that and add my own marks, sending them back out in to the world that once discarded them.
These days Books and I have joined up. We are trying to compete with modern media (I only work on the end pages, where people look for the summary. There’s no width of pages to scare anyone away an obviously a pictures worth a thousand words.) People are busy these days I want to make my ideas very accessible so I updated a format that’s conveyed information for thousands of years. Now it tells my story..
As things change day to day, I still have love for things that aren’t modern, that are yellowed. I admire there lasting power. I want my work to be like that.
