A BIT ABOUT ME
I studied Textile Design at the University of Huddersfield graduating with a First-Class Honours Degree in 2018. There, I developed a practice, which questions materials and challenges technique. Problem solving is also an important drive for me as I cross the two-dimensional boundaries of weaving bringing layers of sculpture and structure to the technique. Although currently conceptual, I see these innovations as applicable across disciplines, including architecture, medical textiles, interior design and engineering.
With a belief in the value of learning through physical experimentation my practice has a strong focus on prototyping. Using rudimentary materials such as sponge, wire and bandage, these experiments explore material, three-dimensional structure and interactive flexibility and quality. This has become a central element of my process interlinking with diagrams, drawings and the ultimate medium of weaving.
My love of experimentation and making is accompanied by an interest in psychology and physiology, particularly the senses. Through my work I explores the relationship between our senses and how we use them to observe, interact and relate to one another.
