Artist Statement
Much of the work I make is rooted in social commentary – sometimes things that make me happy but more often, things that make me mad. Making is my way of getting those things ‘off my chest’. I am also curious. I like to understand the how and the why of things and am happiest when I can take time to explore possibilities and experiment to understand things better, often with with no fixed end in mind, just to discover what might be.

When I create I almost always start with some kind of textile then alter it with ink, dye, paint, print and stitch. I enjoy the transformation processes, using all kinds of interesting materials, allowing the work to evolve and a story to unfold.
