'There are lots of different processes involved in making books – marbling the papers is the most thrilling part. I am currently obsessed by blobs, especially recurring cellular forms. I work in my shed dripping inks and enamels into trays of water. I always experiment. Individual colours have different behaviours, some are very active and antagonistic, others too passive. I generally make a print when the colours are still in motion. I wash surplus ink off with a watering can filled from the water butt.You have to be quick. I often work in a frenzy and tend to end up green.'
