I am a mixed media artist that specializes in textiles.
I have a passion for combining 'old fashioned' textile techniques such as crochet and embroidery in new ways creating large scale, bold conceptual art pieces.
For this installation I was inspired by Alzheimer's brain cells as this is of personal interest as Alzheimer's has impacted on my family.
During the degree show I will be encouraging visitors to crochet alongside me and these crochet pieces will then be added to show the way Alzheimer's slowly takes over a person. I will be leaving the 'I am' space clear as this represents that the person is still there somewhere even after Alzheimer's has taken over.
