Sculpture, weavings and prints based on the investigation of different materials and childhood memories.
My present work is based on the many experiments I made working with different materials during my recent studies. I am also referencing a response to early childhood memories of days with many members of my family who worked in the textile industry. Cloth and fibre were part of everyday life and have featured strongly in my own work. I take time to become familiar with the material I am using. Folding, distorting, repetition, are the words in my active vocabulary at this stage. The work can be slow and labour intensive. I am never quite sure of the final outcome. I strive for my work to convey a sense of calm and peace.
