I’ve taken a slight deviation from my textiles route; while I am still interested in mark making, I am now focusing on embossing and casting. I embossed some lace on think paper which made for detailed, abstract textures. I found it very interesting how…
This series is based on photographs taken at various points in my life and arranged by location. Sections of the images have been obscured through a layer of embroidered pixels sewn directly into the photograph.

Attention internet! In the name of charitable giving (and getting out the house), on the 27th of April my two housemates and I will endeavour to swim 5 kilometers in the national Marie Curie Swimathon! Pain will be endured, pool water inhaled, and according to the event rules, random people may or may not touch our feet. This is a mammoth undertaking by all accounts. Here’s where you come in. If you’re looking to perform a good deed and have a pound or two that you just cant work out what to do with, you can follow the link below to sponsor us (and therefore Marie Curie Cancer Care) in our colossal task. In exchange for you kindness you will receive a ‘warm fuzzy glow’ akin to hugging a new-born puppy or experiencing a mild bout of heartburn. Thank you in advance for doing the right thing xx

Experimenting with liquid latex and mould making around my hand and shells. I thought I would be more interested in the shape and structure, but I instantly became drawn to the marks of my skin that were left behind. I’m now looking into traces we leave behind, translating them into marks, and creating ‘second skins’…
