About

A Travelling Curiosity Collector

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

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

Using simple needle and thread, scraps of antique books and photographs, salvaged vintage chain, lace, lockets and bottles I assemble miniature cabinets of curiosity, elegant necklaces and whimsical bunting to decorate homes and bodies.

By using these components of handmade and found vintage and antique ephemera and other scraps, I link the uncanny images, text and forgotten tiny objects of the past to present function.
