I am a freelance Textile artist I originally trained as an illustrator. I am passionate about colour and texture and I express myself fully through the medium of Textiles.
I am currently working on my 'Stories in Stitch and Time' series. My work explores our connection with objects and memories. Since a child I have been fascinated by discarded fragments of everyday objects found on my walks or visits to beaches. Washed up pieces of glass polished by the sea or broken pieces of pottery. Everything holds a memory and has a history. In my work I tell a story using unrelated 'treasures' I have found. I weave a narrative and hold pieces together with threads and stitch. Each piece can be interpreted and engaged with differently depending on the observer and their own memories and how the objects resonate with them.
