A little bit about me.
After twenty years of living in China I moved to the Netherlands at the end of 2019.
With my background in film animation and theatre I had been regularly involved in theatre projects, events and workshops at International schools.
The first time I used book pages as a material resource, was for costumes in 2005. They were a collection of older books stored in a cardboard box, about to be discarded by the library. For me, this offered a chance to reuse and recycle what would otherwise be thrown away.
Installations for school libraries followed and I became increasingly interested in using books as a creative material.
I try to cultivate and develop techniques which allow me to explore the limitations of the material, while at the same time playing with the visual perception of my book sculptures.
