Questioning whether clothing can be the embodiment of recollected memory captivates me. I find increasing interest in the lives lived within clothing and its extraordinary power to evoke those that are forgotten and unknown. Engaging with the sensory traces imprinted within a garment tantalises my woven practice.
My fascination with the unknown history of a garment has evolved into a keen interest in Tudor dress. The flamboyancy of traditional Tudor dress introduces a versatile approach to materials within my woven designs, in the form of lustrous lurex yarns and embroidery threads.
An experimental approach to my woven designs creates a breadth of woven fabrics suitable for a high-end fashion context. My future aspirations include encouraging the future generation of textile designers, on completion of a PGCE course post-graduation.
