A library is a collection: of thoughts, of interlocking spaces and laden shelves, books, documents, letters. Wood rubs shoulders with leather, vellum, paper, thread.

My recent work forms a library of sorts: large oil paintings reference shelves, books, pages and words; small wooden tablets hint at book covers and page design; upcycled vellum documents take on a new life as abstract paintings; and one-off artist books recall the precious manuscript books of the middle ages.
