My current work is the realisation of my aim of using craft techniques to transform textiles into three-dimensional objects. My making process is intuitive, reflecting my main source of inspiration - nature, in particular plant-life. Each 'petal' element of my textiles is handcrafted and individual. They are put together in a way that is spontaneous yet designed - the pieces 'grow' and become structured and sculptural.
