My work crosses the boundaries of textiles, sculpture and jewellery and I use materials as diverse as paper, metal and fabric in order to convey my message.
Whether I'm tying together strands of cotton to produce a giant cobweb or folding pieces of paper to create a flock of a thousand birds, I often use repetitive labour intensive processes that reveal the hand at work.
I create one-off sculptural art pieces that appear to be intricate and delicate. Recently I have incorporated second-hand books, dresses, safety pins and mundane everyday objects in my work, deconstructing and then reconstructing them to create beautiful art forms. I often work with the imagery of birds and butterflies and am inspired by nature and legends.
My safety pin sculptures are rehearsed through careful drawings. The safety pins are welded together to form the shape of birds, fish or insects.
I make robins, wrens, owls and penguins and am open to new commissions.
