Gillian's Profile

About

I spend my days taking photos of secret places, rescuing discarded old books and stitching up forgotten textiles.

I make art inspired by fairy tales, dark forests, haunted houses and endless travel in the style of dreamy, surreal and scratchy early photography - using vintage cameras, expired film and found photographs.

I rescue old books and ephemera by curating an oddities collection of lost public domain images and printing onto antique paper goods.

I embroider onto forgotten vintage textiles and bits of found paper and photos, create jewellery and miniature cabinets of curiosity from discarded everyday artefacts wrapped up in bits of moss and leaves.
