I love books, paper, typefaces, printed images, diagrams, illustration. These collages are what happened when I was let loose on a very diverse collection of books and maps bought in charity shops and car boot sales. They are the result of research done in a totally free and un-planned way, letting the hands rather than the brain lead the way. The work was exhibited at the Gateway Gallery 3 in Shrewsbury in September 2017 with the title ‘Missing’.
