I take inspiration from the title and subject matter of a book and add an exciting new dimension. The altered book regains value and becomes a vehicle for the construction of narratives. It may be ‘read’ in an entirely new way.
Using scalpels, tweezers and surgical instruments, discarded books are lovingly vandalised back to life by folding, cutting and manipulating portions of text. My work is playful and displays a light witty character. A passion for craftsmanship is immediately obvious.
