I create bespoke textile instillations and accessories mixing media and building up tactile delicate surfaces.
I work and rework my pieces with paint, dyes, bleach and ink, burning and layering until finishing it with hand stitch.
I find beauty in flaky walls, overgrown buildings and encrusted surfaces; this is something I recreate in my work.
My pieces evolve and grow with time, incorporate history with layering and sometimes the tiniest mark made or stitch changes a piece dramatically it’s this detail that excites me.
I run workshops showing methods of contemporary stitch, dyeing your own fabrics and construction ideas; as well as talks as a visiting artist for colleges, schools and groups.
