Full Artist Statement: 

I am a Devon, England based artist and I have lived in the South West of England most of my life. I was lucky enough to obtain the City and Guilds Certificate & Diploma in Creative Textiles before they changed it and most adult learning colleges dropped it from their syllabus. Still on the search to find my visual language I decided to study Fine Art. So I graduated in an Honours Degree in Fine Art through Plymouth University in 2014.

I have been interested in textiles, dye and stitch for as long as I can remember. My work is informed by the study of lyrical or spiritual art, from all over the world. I am fascinated by the effects of colour and texture in abstract art upon the viewer. In my recent work I explore the use of natural dyes such as Indigo, Woad and Rust. Part of my process is to leave this work outside in the rain to weather naturally. The cloth and thread I use is cotton, linen and hemp. The emphasis of my recent work focuses on the expression of numinous experiences.
