Artist Statement

The work I create is informed by my fascination with bright colour, graphic pattern and bold geometry. Whether printed, dyed or woven, my textiles always develop with a foundation of these basic design principles.

Bright colour is the fuel of my existence. Bold colour combinations and a graphic aesthetic catch my eye; I am compelled to explore colourʼs aesthetic potential everyday, dive into its depths and create.

I am particularly inspired by visual representations of mathematical patterns, overt and hidden codes and how cultures around the world use basic visual principles to create compelling craft. I draw on my experiences and observations as an wide-eyed traveller moving through unfamiliar places and challenge myself to see the world around me with a receptive and open gaze. Curiosity drives my creativity, inspiring unlikely connections and stoking my imagination.
