I aim to start conversations by communicating about relatable everyday issues. My conscious choice of using discarded materials, encourages a thoughtful response. I hope to show good things can come from the ‘thrown away’. I enjoy the challenges of sampling and combining, perhaps wire with timber or textile with paper. Working in this way often leads to a series or multiple objects. The concept is important, as is adding layers of meaning with each stitch or pen stroke. I make things that tell stories with what I have to hand. My work is becoming more polished but still has a sense of fun!
Being a member of Ruth’s membership helps me clarify my practice and explore new research methods. The process of walking helps me get my thoughts (more) in order, as does writing all about it.
