‘Bold, enthusiastic, gutsy, experimental, contrasting, textural, rich and intricate are all words that could be used to describe my creations. I love to work with a variety of Medias, materials and processes, pushing myself further, self-motivating and researching the inspiring world around me.
Research is a key part of all creative processes, although my predominant specialism is in Textiles, I enjoy the incorporation of a broad-spectrum of methods within the research stage. Drawing, Painting, Photography, Film and sculpture frequently form the basis of development for my fabric collections.
As a mixed media artist I am process driven and do not like to limit my materials to just fabric, I like to work with structure rather than limp flat fabrics. Wood and Thermoplastic make up a vast part of my body of work. one of the largest arguments presently that widely separates schooling from university is the constant back and forth battle of whether or not a creation is still classed as ‘textiles’ once solid objects are combined. I am curious to find out exactly what happens to our plastic waste once it’s ‘recycled’.
