Working in a series is a habit that helps keep my work intuitive and spontaneous. My current studio practise aspires to conjure a sense of places that I have visited and that have brought me solace or joy in recent times. Compositions show a balance of colour, shape, form, line and texture coming together to represent abstracted fleeting moments and memories of those visited places. I use a variety of dyes, inks and pigments on varied weights of new and repurposed cotton and wool fabrics to create materials for collage. A range of painting and monoprinting approaches are used to colour before tearing and cutting the cloth. No cloth is ever wasted or discarded, remnants are carefully categorised into a colour and texure palette for futureand positioning and layering has been set I use hand and machine stitch as an exploratory drawing tool for detail and refinement.
