“My work is functional and simple and imbues all that has informed me so far: I am a sewer, dyer, weaver, and a science lover. At an incredibly early age I was taught by my Mum and Nana how to sew, and to love science from my father. My textiles work amalgamates these two worlds; love of the hand crafted with my analytical science background. Creating my own fabric allows me the freedom to express these two halves. Dyeing and printing gives my analytical voice a chance to explore the chemistry behind the substances and their various reactions, while weaving, sewing and designing the prints allows my childhood experience with my Mum and Nana to come through.
The imagery on my printed textiles comes from my childhood exploring the outdoors with my family. Clean organic shapes and lines paired with a subtle colour pallet.”
My current work has grown and changed with me. The quality of my work has highly increased, I have learned how to complete projects that I am proud of with a relatively low error rate, and in a quicker amount of time.”
