My inspiration for my creative practice is fueled by a passion and a desire to explore the environment around us, looking for the fleeting ephemeral traces of our footprints in society. Influences derive from time and memory, objects silently disappearing into their surroundings, revealing the beauty of surface decay.
I use old and discarded objects and obscure and decayed architecture as a starting point. I then combine and assemble the found objects along with distressed fabrics, paper manipulation and stitch to create a personal response in which I reflect not only on the tactile nature of the materials but also on the underlying meaning of using found materials to create new art from old.
I am particularly interested in searching for vintage envelopes and dressmaking items and exploring typography along side collage and drawing.
Many of my items are one off bespoke pieces and can be personlised by request.
