Below are excerpts from her profile.
”I often work within the realm of fairy-tales and folk-lore. I began making a series of book-sculpture, cutting-out images from old books to create three-dimensional diorama’s, and displaying them inside wooden boxes”.
”For the cut-out illustrations, I tend to lean towards young-girl characters, placing them in haunting, fragile settings, expressing the vulnerability of childhood, while also conveying a sense of childhood anxiety and wonder. There is a quiet melancholy in the work, depicted in the material used, and choice of subtle colour.”
After looking at her blog, I realise that I have missed out on a paper workshop course run by the V&A: Fairy tales and fables, Paper art, Sold out! Not that I could go any way..living on the other side of the world..but I would have loved to have done it.
