Studio and Textile art process 

I work from my home in Brixton, South London. My textile works are made entirely by hand, large pieces can take many months of slow work to complete, but I find the process meditative and that it helps to alleviate the stress of our fast paced, instant fix, digital world.

 

I have a large body of textiles that I have collected over many years, committed to being as sustainable as possible I buy from factory surplus and use old clothing in my works. I experiment with different ways to tear, cut, manipulate fabrics according to their textures and colour.
