reed, wool, silk, waxed linen, silk stitching
My woven and coiled baskets provide the structure for my imagery which floats across the surface .The translucence of the silk allows investigation of the basket underneath. I employ multiple techniques to merge layers of silk gauze, wool, surface embroidery and hand woven tapestry .My challenge is the seamless integration of surface and form.
I hope my work evokes a sense of place and offers a connection to the natural world.
