The story of the everyday fascinates me, I find beauty and rhythm in my surroundings and ways to use this to record and tell the stories. As art has from the beginning of time, told the stories before me. I use the places and people as inspiration, raising the status and acknowledging the ordinary lives of the everyday.
I choose to use craft based practices, I find this helps make direct links between process and people. The layers of meaning become infused both metaphorically and literally. The pigments, fibres and compounds get captured using techniques like eco dyeing, weaving, wood working, and traditional textile hand skills.
