2D Textiles

 

My work is hand-stitched and built up in layers of fabric and thread, often incorporating drawing or painting. I like to work organically and enjoy employing various techniques for incorporating randomness alongside my creative decision-making.

My most recent work explores my relationship with Aphantasia (an inability to visualise), particularly my experience of SDAM (severe deficient autobiographical memory), a common symptom, resulting from being unable to revisit past events in the mind’s eye. This artwork probes the difference between what is known to have happened and what is truly remembered.
