I make clothes and related subjects in three dimensional paper collage. I use a variety of papers from industrial waste to specialist hand made types. It can take up to five years to make a collection of papers for one work. I manipulate paper by breaking down the surface to resemble cloth. I am interested in creative display and all my images are presented in box frames. Commissions welcome.
