Exhibiting a range Artist Books with  “Shoddy”:

a disability art project. 


Shoddy is the name for new cloth made from woollen waste and recycled fabric. This original meaning is now largely unknown, and the word has come to mean of inferior quality, shabby or broken down. This is the starting point for an exhibition by disabled artists working with woollen or other yarns and fabrics, or recycled and reused textile materials.

We are challenging ideas that disabled people are second-rate. Instead, we think that “shoddy” could be used to describe the government’s treatment of disabled people, with cuts to welfare beneļ¬ts and public services.

On Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 May, 10.00-17.00, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, plays host to an annual and national two day Artists’ Book Market. Over 40 national and regional artists, bookmakers, small press publishers, artist’s groups, zine artists and bookbinders will be exhibiting and selling their work direct to the public.

Belong Sculpted Artist Book , block print
Traditional techniques, processes and experimentation are at the core of my practice coupled with ecological concerns.  Nature and environment are a continual inspiration which informs projects and collections. 
‘Lifeloom’ is a term I use to describe the narrative quality of my work producing artworks in paper, wool coupled with found and discarded objects. ‘Lifeloom’ represents locally sourced, re-cycled & re-purposed materials created in the mediums of Artist Books and Limited Edition Fine Art Prints weaving layers of image, process and story bound with inheritance skills and 1940’s utility ethos.
BELONG was initially a paper based  collection continuing with the Cherish project; which focuses my belief in cherishing our immediate and wider environment. I was recently very stirred by a visit to Staffordshire Arboretum Memorial, specifically the newly installed WWI Trench.  My grandfather fought this war, so once again I pay homage to him and all those who experience a personal war.
