3D Experiments

 

I have been a 2D artist all my life but, in 2019, for the first time, I discovered a need to explore sculptural forms. Once I began, I couldn’t work fast enough to keep up with my ideas – there was so much to try – so the experimental pieces are small, allowing me to work though techniques at a reasonable speed. I have also begun thinking about ways to incorporate upcycled waste into my textile pieces, as I like the idea of ‘locking’ these substances into artwork.
