I am a narrative artist using
recycled fabrics to create whimsical textile illustrations that explore
childhood memories and narratives
Patchwork, appliqué, kantha stitching and hand embroidery are blended into a
quilt like cloth rich in imagery, colour and texture.
Materials used in the work predominately come from my large collection of
fabrics collected over the years with cherished scraps often being incorporated
into the designs
Recycled fragments of commercial and vintage fabrics are over dyed by hand to
create a soft, faded, and comfortable to touch fabric with a sense of
Inspired by Folk Art, my work combines my love of storytelling with my passion
for embroidery and I spend many an evening curled up on the sofa with needle in
hand letting my mind wander to new characters and places and the adventures
they have there.
The look is endearingly charming with a fairytale quality.
