My practice aims to examine process, materiality, craft, costume and performance. I use a variety of materials that challenge textile art as an academy that raise questions about craft as art. Process is a very important aspect of the work, exploring alternative fabric manipulation to realise wearable artworks with a focus on sculpture and installation. It is important the works are open to touch as the tactility of the mediums are crucial to the works being made and they must be included with the viewing of them as well. Concerned with the uncanny and how creating these shaggy figures makes us question the reality we live in. Conceptually the work has morphed into an interdisciplinary practice, engaging with mythical creatures and folk tales of human yet nonhuman beings. Creating full body costumes that wonder between the boundaries of fact and fiction.
