Textile Art & Animals
Since the youngest age, I always loved to sew.
It’s not just about making things, but the simple meditative act of stitching too. The needle’s up & down, the back & forth, like the inhale & exhale, it’s a rhythm I melt into.
I love to build up landscapes in layers of fabrics and yarn, embroidered embellishments, buttons and beads.
There’s an overlap with my sewing and mixed media, a netherworld where I paint and print onto fabrics, then stitch together with layers of dyed paper.
Meanwhile there’s the family of made up animals, ever growing, and finding their way to homes around the world.
