Welcome to Pulpitations

 

Pulpitations will be 10 years old this year! It all began in the Courtyard at Dalby Forest in 2008 where I had one of a cluster of craft workshops alongside other artists. My background has been in textiles with papermaking following on some years later which opened up a whole new world!

I call myself a "Papermaking Artist" as I make decorative handmade papers using selective techniques which are highlighted with different light sources: natural, candle, battery and electric. My latest work is on a miniature scale creating tiny apertures encapsulating details of nature. I am inspired by trees and plant material always searching underfoot, in hedgerows, forests or on beaches. I have drawers and boxes filled with treasures! I am also passionate about recycling and reusing.

In 2016 I set up my new studio in our garden which is located near Wetherby in West Yorkshire. My business is well established now and my work is very varied from designing and making my unique products to giving demonstrations, running workshops and providing papermaking at events. I love the diversity of my work and the people I get to meet and the new places I discover. 

My studio will be open to the public in May this year as part of Artists Around Wetherby and you are very welcome to visit (or at other times by appointment). New for this year is Harrogate Flower Show where I will be exhibiting and selling my work as well as demonstrating on my stand. (Details on the Events page.) 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like any further information.
