RED ONION KISS
TILL THE FISH DANCED
WHEN FORTUNE FLOWERS
Based in Shropshire
I am interested in conveying meaning by the use of abstracted letterform shapes, colour and surface texture. My work merges two disciplines, visual communication and textiles - the influence of my background in typography being evident in the work where words are embedded in the design. Although lettering is an underpinning, fundamental element in most of the work, it is not necessarily intended to be legible or obvious.
My work sometimes combines woven tapestry with other textile techniques such as knotting, wrapping and binding which are often used to intensify the outline or meaning of the work.
My current work is a series of interpretations of sections of text from myths and stories that I consider resonate with life today. My work has been exhibited in the UK and abroad.
