As an emerging textile and fibre artist, I am interested in life and unexplored worlds. As part of my practice, I explore aerial landscapes (particularly Australian) and microscopic worlds (think microbes, plant cells, seeds and pods).
I recreate what I see in textiles and fibres. My work involves bold colours, shapes, texture and movement. It can be a panorama or a cellular structure. Currently I am focusing on phytotomy (plant cell structure).
My aim is to bring life to unexplored vistas through my interpretations and designs.
I want my audience to experience the joy, the wonder and the impact that these worlds have on me; and to want to explore what I see.
