“Hand and machine stitch is used as a means of mark-making to produce work that is usually figurative, and built up in layers; of time, of thought, of fabric, and of stitch. Often displaying a slightly surreal sense of humour, my work challenges both identity and preconception whilst ‘at first glance’ appearing homely and domestic.
I enjoy the ‘out of place’, the unexpected, the bizarre and am an avid photographer who makes a constant visual record as an ‘aide-mémoire’ both at home and on my travels. My work combines the real, the imagined, the remembered, and sometimes the nonsensical with a slightly surreal sense of humour”. [From the artist’s website/ Du website de l’artiste].
