I combine upholstery, stitch and mark-making, finding beauty and wholeness in materials that others may discard. I am inspired by the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi - a world view that embraces transience and imperfection.
I build lots of different techniques into my work, enjoying the unpredictability and beauty of processes and transferring concepts between different media. This includes ceramic patchwork, impressing with upholstery materials and shibori dyeing. I like experimenting with many different forms of fracturing and repairing. I give time and care to scrap and found materials that would otherwise have gone in the bin, giving a new beauty and celebrating the odd shapes, tears and rips.
Textile work inspired by colour, texture and pattern in the natural world.
