My work uses largely hand-stitched processes and celebrates the non- machine made mark. For the last decade I have specialised in devising large-scale pubic engagement projects working with groups from culturally diverse backgrounds.
I am drawn to colour, pattern, folk art and popular culture, ranging from hand painted shop signs, to folk costume, outsider art and well dressings.
