Statement

Visual narrative - art design and making objects.

Methodologies - drawing, painting, designing and making contribute to visual art.  Photography and print lead to artists books. Inspiration comes from movement, dance, theatrical scenarios, costume and aged fabrics. 

Exploring the relationship between cloth and clay with a focus on dance and performance. Working with porcelain revisits the past, through the use of ballet shoe as form and identity. 

Textile work involves designing and making sensual one off pieces using silk. 

Techniques include, drawings, screenprint, hand dyed fabrics.  Occassionally the devore technique is used to create a sense of aging.  The use of botanicals evokes a sense of timeless beauty existing in nature.
