Samples of my work
I articulate my art in a very precise manner, that is every piece perfectly placed and thought out. My art practice requires much measuring and calculating to construct a finished piece of work, so much so that the work is a form of puzzle solving. The series work Crossroads, Fold & Crease, Formulas, Fluidity, and Spirographics are in my preferred medium of fibre in the form of stitched textiles with elements of mixed medium applied to the surface. In my series ‘Single Use’ and ‘Receptacles’ I explore my passion for sculptural form and construct with a variety of materials: textiles, paper, plastic, metal, clay, and/or wood. My skills are varied and flow freely from the making of one piece to another.
