Precious Objects exhibition

My next exhibition is a small group exhibition with local makers group Ornamentum. We have all created new work based on the concept of Precious Objects; either inspiring objects or precious materials we love.

I will be showing a new collection of found, damaged or every day objects transformed into precious pieces, with personal, historical  or imagined narratives.


2nd – 13th August 2016. 9am-5.30pm Monday to Friday and 11am-3pm Saturday 13th August for artists open day.

Lightbox Gallery, LCB Depot, 31 Rutland St, Leicester, LE1 1RE



I’ve just started work on a new project to create a site-specific installation for my own studio building, as part of a new exhibition called Regeneration.  Ten members of Ornamentum are working on a show inspired by the regeneration of local area, the history of hosiery factories and new beginnings.

My work explores new growth in an abstract way and is in response to the building itself,  formed of masses of tiny textile pieces fitted into the nooks and crannies of the building such as holes in the brickwork and gaps down the side of windows. Some of my first samples are shown, some of which are pretty invisible at a distance. I wonder how long it will take for the other studio tenants to notice these bits!

The exhibition opens with a preview on Tuesday 19th November (5-8pm) and continues until January 2014.
