July Open Studios
I am a practicing textile artist based in Ickleton, South Cambridge. Personal intuitive responses to the environment and the effect of time on surface are pieced together through stitch, rust and eco printing, dyeing, painting, and applique. Inspired by the beauty of antique textiles, faded and weathered by use and the elements, fragments of past times, I give my work a worn and aged quality. My work is characterised by a use of used and repurposed materials which are revived with dye and printed elements and detailed stitching.
I am currently exploring my world close to my home considering the now and what has gone before and what is yet to come. Taking time and space to observe and contemplate moments during the move from winter through the arrival of spring and the coming of summer.
