I’ve always made things and making things always makes me feel better. When I was a child making things was my only form of self expression within a hostile home, and as an adult, making art and craft work has helped me to heal the scars from my childhood.
I love working with textiles and embroidery. I love the rich colours and textures that only fabric and threads truly possess. Beauty is incredibly important to me, it is both uplifting and transforming. When I make a piece of work, I use beautiful materials even if the subject matter is painful or terrifying. The materials help me lift that experience up into a better place, allowing me to heal and restore myself.
