My work is all hand-stitched and built up in layers of fabric and thread. I rarely plan in detail or trace up designs. Instead, I allow the work to evolve organically, using a combination of deliberately unpredictable techniques and instinctive decision-making. I often splash dye, incorporate fabric offcuts as they come from the bag, or stitch in collected materials, such as sheep’s wool or thread ends. I enjoy mismatching line and colour to create different rhythms and combine my stitching and organza in a similar way to which I would use drawn lines and watercolour.
