'Somewhere between a pencil and a fine needle lies the meditative and cathartic process of art making...'
Conversations are fundamental to my art-making. I am interested in the stimulus and symbolic meaning of colour and pattern and use them within my drawing, printmaking and textile-based artworks to explore the idea of Identity. I am also very interested in the idea of the ‘double-take’ and drawing in the viewer to explore more nuanced subtexts. The artwork depicted in my images is Dreams & demons, an interactive installation where I invite my audience to write me their dreams and demons. I then stitch these texts onto strips of fabric and weave them into the artwork.
