I am fascinated by the multiplication, repetition and growth of structures in living things and how this relates to the construction of fabrics. To make an embroidery piece I use scrap fabrics like layers of paint, leaving rough edges which show off the tiny woven patterns as they disintegrate.
My love of many colours comes from a love of festivals which stems from childhood, with endless lines of Indian clothes stalls, banners, tents, tatters, dancers, circus costumes, processions and noise.
I graduated in Constructed Textiles in 2005, specialising in weaving. Currently I make artworks and craft using machine embroidery and reverse applique techniques. I provide workshops and work with local arts organisations on a variety of community projects.
