Through making by hand I explore the visual and emotive potential of materials. I enjoy experimenting with different media, predominantly fibre based: silk, cotton, velvet, wool and paper. Each have the potential to be transformed using domestic equipment and tools: a sewing machine, scissors, pliers, a needle. My work often blurs the boundaries between two and three dimensional forms of art; some pieces are painted or stained, like canvases in relief. Hertfordshire
