Norcross describes herself as a magpie - utilising old clothing, scraps of wool, paper and plastic to create something new from something old. Her current body of work contains bold, bright and colourful prints and experiments with textile, looking at rips and pulls, distorting and creating edges and shapes and knitting with torn fabrics. Norcross uses stitch as a design feature and elements of hand stitching and beading often feature in a piece. She draws inspiration from clothing of the past, from Victorian, the roaring twenties to the swinging sixties.
