Personal Statement

‘Painting with a needle sculpting with a thread’

1987 graduated with Fine Art Degree BA Hons (Sculpture) working in papier-mâché and wax.

1998 I learnt to knit experimenting with wool, cotton, silk threads, wire and raffia to create small free form sculptures.

2005 was the starting point of hand constructed textile pieces ‘wearable art’.

I particularly love the works of Louise Bourgeois and Hilma of Klint, textile designer Bernat Klein and Japanese Animation Studio Ghibli.
