Statement

Visual narrative, telling stories through art, design and making objects.

The timeless design of the ballet shoe bring the handmade object and the visual arts together.

Inspiration comes from a passion for dance, costume and worn and aged cloth which evokes a sense of memory.   Exploring the relationship between cloth and clay with a focus on dance and performance.  New work with porcelain revisits the past. through the use of ballet shoe as form. Methodolgies of drawing, making and photography as process for artists books.

The use of botanicals evokes a sense of timeless beauty existing in nature. 

Textile work involves designing and making sensual feminine costume complimented by fragments of vintage cloth.  Techniques and process include drawings, screenprint, hand dyeing fabrics and applique which creates originiality and a unique presence.
