About Me

I've been a pioneering papermaker since graduating from the South Australian School of Art in 1993. Since then, I've dedicated my studio practice to making design-led, botanical papers made in harmony with the Australian environment 


I make my papers using first-century techniques and traditional equipment. Every paper is made from a blend of Australian plant fibres (Mostly Tasmanian natives since I live on this beautiful island) combined with post-consumer, recycled textiles sourced with the help of Vinnies, a local disability enterprise. The results are beautiful, wild papers which are museum-quality and 100% biodegradable.  

In addition to offering a core range of 29 original designs based on 19th Century flora and fauna illustrations, I also create bespoke designs for clients and a full papermaking service for artists, corporates, weddings as well as props for film and theatre projects.
