Flotsam tapestries

My tapestries have been handwoven completely from material gathered on the British coastline. Working with found objects, be it a length of fishing line or a once loved lost toy, the beach never ceases to provide a starting point for me to weave stories of our time.

Cyanotype prints

The results of this primitive photography technique create a ghostly feel, and have been a good way to explore how all of these ordinary objects can become extraordinary in a new context, as they may well do, generations from now. Adapting this technique to  record human detritus in the natural environment says much about this method to tell the story of our material culture.

Flotsam prints

This collection of prints has been created using found plastic objects gathered on the UK coastline. I am drawn to working with these discarded everyday objects which mimic the microscopic marine world seen by those researching the effects of microplastics in our fragile oceans. They bring into focus human impacts at both a miniscule and planetary level. Each print is completely unique, created by inking individual objects and printing by hand. They are not digital prints and you are buying a ‘one of a kind’ artwork.
