The pieces follow the series entitled 'Nature's Books'
The journey began with the concept of the infinite number of unread words sitting on bookshelves across the planet, poetry never read, advice never taken. What would nature write in her book of advice on how to protect her.
I use various weights of paper which I dye with watercolour or inks then, when dry, print marks too with collograph plates or natural forms. In turn these are madeito tiny books and placed into collages which are then run through my press to be melded into the 300gsm background paper. Each page of the book opens and refers to other marks in the collage. The words are found by going through endless small pieces of text that join the conversation between the paper, books and myself. The words almost find me rather than me finding them. I am now working on developing larger works which relate to these 10 x 10 cm pieces.
