Hello. My name is Lydia Crook. I am a freelance paper engineer and artist who works from my little studio in Hove. I tend to specialize in all things to do with paper, from pop-up books to ornate paper cuttings, but I sometimes get a little excited about other creative things. I enjoy taking photos of anything interesting, usually not very well. I have a small hobby of designing and making my own clothes and I strangely enjoy old-fashioned crafts, such as cross-stitching and embroidery. I love to swim (in the sea as well as in a pool) and I find running fun when the weather is good. I read the occasional book for grown-ups but sometimes prefer to engross myself into a good old classic children’s book (it's an occupational hazard). I also own a rabbit called Ralph. He is grey.
