My themes, whatever the media, involve relationships between people, how we rub up against each other. Sometimes fleeting, sometimes deeply scarring. Sometimes we have insight into the effect someone has had on us, sometimes we don’t.
Much of my work uses clothes and household textiles: these items bring with them a ready made short cut to the personal and domestic. These items are altered and sometimes destroyed to skew meaning. Embroidery is heavy, obsessive, time consuming. The processes I use are usually well crafted, detailed.
