My practice is studio-based and research-led, working on exhibitions and funded projects as well as collaborations and commissions. I established my practice in 2005 after 8 years in the museum sector and combine my practice with teaching, writing and consultancy.
My work draws heavily on my first career in museums and is based around material culture and human lives. I aim to explore and illuminate complex narratives through thoughtful and engaging work, often around challenging subjects. Hand stitch and traditional textile techniques form the basis of my work although I also experiment with print, digital and mixed media.
I work on projects which respond research and my practice encompasses hangings, quilts, small objects and installations which all have distinctive feel of preciousness and delicacy created by the combination of hand stitch, fragile fabrics and emotive subject matter.
I am currently working on several residencies and exhibition projects and hope to expand my portfolio to include public art and more commissions.
