I am a quietly enthusiastic Textile Artist/Sampler. My work is eclectic, driven by slow meditative processes through a wide range of techniques, incorporating both hand and machine embroidery. My thought process and ideas develop as I work. I find inspiration from the visualisation of sampling and artwork combined to create and energise the piece further. I would describe my work as intricate yet simple, precise but with a bit of chaos thrown in, that needs to be digested up close, but also at a distance. My work process allows me to slow down and to consider a way of being. It lets my mind wander, which for me is a means of self-care. This escapism allows me to take a personal approach while balancing the methodical thinking required to ensure deliberate quality. The ability to control a line, and the application of deliberate, small movements are vital in my work. As is the complementation of colours and the intricacy between one line and the next. This results in the work giving a hypnotic rhythm with meandering lines.
