My work entwines childhood experience with my love of reading. It embodies my life outlook. I am a nostalgic person who finds reading evokes childhood memories. As a young child I was obsessed with collecting random items for craft. I attempt to replicate this by using sculpting techniques on pages from old books, making them the medium for my sculptures. I manipulated second-hand books and found objects, turning discarded items into book sculptures. In combining all of these materials I present the stories I read and loved as a tangible compilation.
Dr Suess, The Lorax
Lewis Carroll, Alice’s adventures in Wonderland
Roald Dahl, Matilda
