My work explores pattern, repetition, mark making and surface design. I manipulate paper using cutting and folding methods to create geometric patterns that have depth and texture when lit. I source soft, thin papers that have beautiful qualities under the light.
I wanted to design a lighting range that would be practical as well as beautiful. By peeling away sections of the paper, I can create a very thin layer so that enough light is emitted to light the room. The translucency of this surface also means that these lampshades look great in daylight as well. Design has to work as well as providing decoration.
My inspiration comes from many sources, but at the core is a love of pattern and designs that work in harmony. My eyes are drawn to the decorative elements in our world.
In September 2015 I completed the Craft Council's Hothouse 5 programme, which supports emerging makers by providing the tools to grow a sustainable craft buisness. I live and have my studio in Frome, Somerset.
