My books explore the layers of consciousness and sub consciousness through which travel is experienced. 

I am intrigued by the concept of travel - movement from one point to another as well as travel through Time,
Space and Place.

The majority of my imagery is based on my own photography as well as some vintage ephemera. The
images are combined with various book structures to create a harmonious whole. 

 Computer software are used to alter and manipulate the images. The  books are printed on a wide variety
of papers. The books are hand cut and assembled using many traditional and non-traditional bookmaking

I like the idea of working in a 21st century technology along with using various bookmaking methods and
book structures from the past
