With just a pair of scissors, I create intricate, hand cut collages which reflect my Victorian obsession with faeries, flora and fauna. From my extensive collection of books, prints and pages that are antique, forgotten and often foxed with age, I cut out images, categorize them and then eventually piece them together like a complex paper jigsaw puzzle. My collages are places where beauty is strange, creatures are curious and a sense of wonder prevails.
