I am a Textile Artist creating conceptual sculptures, hangings and wall art inspired by emotional responses. My techniques include knitting, stitch, wrapping and felting and the materials I work with mostly involve mixed yarns, fabrics and threads. I also make detailed drawings.
I have a BA in Fine Art and Textiles and have recently graduated from an MA in Textile Art. with a Distinction.
My current body of work involves the despair I feel of different cultures and religions suffering in conflict. It drives me to express important messages of acceptance, empathy and hope. I feel it is possible though understanding these messages there could be more harmonious outcomes.
This body of work is about creating expressions of unity and hope emerging from this pain.
I am also part of art collective Transition, a group of artists form various craft disciplines working at Masters level of practice. www.transitioncraft design.co.uk
