My work originates in the textiles workshops using heat transfer technology to create pattern, colour and texture. Through drawing, mark making and collage, my projects move from paper to fabric. This collection began by looking at traditional glove making techniques. I was inspired by memories, anecdotes and the symbolism associated with gloves. These have then been incorporated into my work by using hand embroidery to stitch them onto the gloves. Through layering sublimation papers I created new and unique colours upon synthetic gloves. By combining heat transfer, embroidery and foiling I created a final installation piece of textile art.
