I am a mixed media textile artist interested in investigating colour and texture by building layers of fabric, paper, print or stitch. Combining these elements together alters the surface of the material and creates something new. Each individual mark, by print or by stitch, becomes significant and encourages the process of making to evolve into a tactile journey. Working by both machine and by hand I have explored the vibrant colours and the rich textures of the hustle and bustle of India. This developed into a unique piece that emanates the intense colours, textures and imagery that captured my initial interest.
