I make my pictures using torn paper. The images I use are from photographs I take. My photos are close-ups of natural objects I see when I'm out and about; things that have interesting textures and colours. I often photograph close-ups of wood - tree trunks, fences etc - because of its beautiful lines. I upload the images onto my computer, sometimes edit them and then use them in my pictures. I enjoy experimenting to see how I can transform a close-up detail of an object into a stormy sky or a snowy field. I tear the paper by hand and build up the picture from the first piece that I glue down. I enjoy making pictures inspired by the English landscape, seasons and nature.
