Description

Art is my passion and my life. I make my own art and teach art to people with mental health challenges through Magpie Arts CIC.

This year will see a new body of work exploring the morphing process of a new emerging me, evolving like a new species of butterfly, through mental health recovery and physical changes in body mass.

My work will involve stitched pages that have been taken from deconstructed books and remorphed into works of art. Like an onion there are many layers of a personality, some visible and some silent, some broken and some hidden deep beneath.  

 

 

 

 

 


About

I create using a multitude of mediums and methods. This year I'am exploring the ancient Japanese technique of Sashiko stitching which was used by the poor workers to re-inforce or repair clothing in order to extend its life.

By reconstructing the pages of books and turning them into art works through stitching I'm reinventing them and extending their life like the Japanese workers.
