Jolie Bird | Epic Tapestry, 1999

My art practice is grounded in Textiles, a time-honoured medium that requires dexterity, intellect and intuition. Textiles are both visual and tactile in nature; process and materials become intertwined with concept. I am interested in the dichotomies that exist within textiles: simple techniques translate to complex patterns, ancient technology is used to represent contemporary imagery and a required dedication to craftsmanship in a time when machines and efficiency are the norm. My studio practice continues to explore these specific contrasts and the tensions, both visual and conceptual, that arise through a range of techniques and process.
