I use paper a great deal in my work. I love its fragility and the fact that it can also be strengthened by bonding, laminating and waxing. In ‘Baptism’, a series of miniature dresses, I have used waxed, stitched paper, Catholic texts from religious books and scripture notes written when I was fifteen years old. Baptism is traditionally associated with purity. By contrast I make use of staining, scorching and partially obliterated texts.
