Sculptural Textiles

 

Having worked in 2D all my life, in 2019, I began using my textiles to explore sculptural forms. Once I began, I couldn’t work fast enough to keep up with my ideas, so created small pieces at the start, which allowed me to more rapidly explore techniques. As I discovered methods and materials that felt right, the work began to evolve into larger pieces, most of which you can see in the Plastic Waste project area.
