I am a Tasmanian Artist and Bookbinder, with a deep-seated love for all things weird and wonderful. The act of creation is a magical one, and something I fill my days with in its many forms.... a way of expressing myself, of externalising the way I see things in my mind. Stories are much more than just words, they are clues and signposts.... and painting the stories connects me to them.
My other love is bookbinding. And although it's a somewhat "lost art", it is making a comeback... and I am incredibly thankful to be one of the people bringing the art back into the light. There is something very special about creating something into which someone will spill their thoughts, dreams, hopes and losses.
I believe in living artfully. There is a special magic in a common object when it is lovingly and skillfully handmade. I enjoy bringing this magic to others, helping them to look more closely and the smaller things easily missed, and to appreciate more tangibly the hand-crafted aesthetic.
There is one quote that I stumbled upon years ago and has stuck with me. It goes:
"Artists create dreams for those who are awake"
That, I feel, is my role as an artist. To remind you of the dreams you lost, to help you look closer at the smaller things, to help you recapture that sense of magic that faded as you "grew up".
