Silkscreen monoprint on handmade Holly leaf paper

Original

Statement

The ideas and images in my current work are drawn from the East Anglian countryside where I am based.  Images created from composite layered drawings are screenprinted onto handmade leaf paper.

Working in tune with the seasons, I gather leaves and fibres and transform them using traditional papermaking techniques which I have developed to produce delicate sheets of leaf paper without the aid of added adhesives.  Each sheet of leaf paper is crafted with an image in mind and the challenge is to create a balance between leaf paper and image, man and the environment.
