Artist's Statement:
I specialise in providing interior designers and architects with one off textile art pieces, digital prints, soft furnishings for site specific projects. My work is used in hotels, restaurants, bars, corporate receptions and residential properties.Using my background in textile design, I develop series of ideas, where I experiment with materials. In this process, I use a series of techniques, which are hand sewing, machine embroidery, bonding, heating, dyeing, painting, etc. Working in this way, means that my work has a spontaneous approach as the materials and techniques dictate the end result. I also use photography taking pictures of nature and everyday happenings. I use my photography to develop ideas through the use of computer manipulation, changing the original image size, colour and abstracting the image by using techniques which make the image bold and graphic.
