Textiles in Practice

Art is Not a Mirror. It is a Hammer - John Grierson 

My practice aims to interrupt the everyday by highlighting the peculiar everyday. I seek inspiration from the notion of noticing the unnoticed and translating this material into visual art. 

I use my work as a tool to engage conversation with an audience, extending verbal dialogue to a visual exchange of information. Words, questions and imagery that feature in my work often trigger thought, discussion and laughter. 

Post-graduation I am interested in residency opportunities that would allow the extension of visual conversation with a new audience.
