I make collections of tiny envelopes, flowers and boats, using different kinds of papers including Japanese hand-printed papers, maps, books, music, old postcards and letters.
I’m interested in how we communicate and how that has changed over the years. The collections are also inspired by my interest in insects. As a child, I was fascinated by collections of beetles in museum cases, and my envelope collections reflect this.
