My studio/store space is open by appointment and advertised open days. All welcome.
My artwork emerges from the collection and reuse of consumer by-product materials. Each piece is intricate, delicate and time consuming to create. This process is a tribute to the natural world and a ritual against destruction.
My practice is an act of endurance. My desire to acknowledge, record and come to terms with the waste by-products of daily life provides both muse and material.
The materials I collect are proving their own endurance, resilience and hardiness. Which leads to the question, are they waste? My endurance extends to proving otherwise.
My belief in ‘waste as worth’ and my continuing interest in the shelter and protection of people, nature and the environment, is expressed in all of my work – a heavy, practical span of hand-knitting, knotting and weaving.
I consider endurance to be an indicator of progress, the ability to resist, withstand and recover. I see my finished artworks as a symbol of this.
