The manipulation of layered three dimensional forms is the main focus of my work. I mark, layer, crease, drape, stack and stitch textiles to create 3 dimensional art quilts, structures and assemblages and allow gravity to determine their final forms.
My process is led by an internal monologue and open ended explorations. I set parameters then manipulate and transform textiles into sculpted forms. Lacking the ability to visualise images in my 'minds eye' I never have an internal vision of a finished piece.
My ultimate aim is to surprise the viewer, inviting them to question what they see, whether it be the subject of the piece or that textiles have been used in unusual ways.
