2D Experiments

 

My work often plays with the joy of serendipity, mismatching line and colour through enforced randomness. I don’t measure, draw out designs, or cut fabric to fit. Instead I use unpredictable techniques such as splashed dye or tea stains, incorporating fabrics offcuts as they come from the box, or stitching in collected materials, like sheep’s wool, used teabags or thread ends.
