Book art- I am developing children's stories. They will be kinaesthetic and interactive
I like to draw the viewer in to see in new ways-to observe and respond to the works, extracting their own experiences and perspectives and gaining new interpretations. I use the sewing machine as a drawing tool along with found and conventional materials, but the work has many layers, visually and conceptually. I love to work from poetry/written word and am nearly always inspired by natural forms. A keen environmentalist I recycle and upcycle. Sourcing discarded objects and giving them new meaning and life. I have started to explore 3D and relief. Developing the concept for and curating Harvesting Time, a community arts project funded by Cordiale has inspired me to further explore my heritage and environment. My AA2A Residency at Plymouth College of Art, meant I had the opportunity extend my knowledge of print and digital printing.
