Coming from a family heritage in tailoring has instilled a sense of craftsmanship and I have come to value the many processes of making, especially repetitive and labour intensive work.  There is something in the stillness of these ways of working which allows me to think about the world and my place in it.

Growing up with a tailor also meant growing up with scraps of fabric and lots of them.  This is where my love for materials and especially texture, comes from.  I believe that all matter can conceivably be considered a material and therefore belongs in an artist’s toolbox.
