My artistic practice focuses on textiles particularly embroidery, patchwork and book making. I am particularly drawn to print and natural dyeing and I often employ simple video and time lapse techniques to record my work and develop my thinking.
Personal and collective memory linked to my South Wales heritage are of particular interest, as is the natural world. I am fascinated by the cycles of nature, growth and decay and the fragility of plants and flowers.
I often find interest in my immediate environment at home particularly my garden and during the recent pandemic this has become more evident. My present concern involves creating a sense of place in my practice, using materials that are found on my doorstep to explore what makes this space so special to me. Through this shift in my practice I am aiming to develop a deep connection with my surroundings and move my work forward.
My working practice involves research and experimentation and slowly a body of work emerges that feels right.
