I am an artist and maker. My practice of printmaking and painting has evolved to include functional textile art with a strong focus on repurposed fabrics that are not going to end up in landfill: I create slow fashion garments with unique colourful appliqu├ęs made from recycled material. Second hand fabrics also feature in my small collages of landscapes and quirky street scenes.
Upcycling textiles is my contribution to the circular economy and to the growing consumer awareness that clothing needs to be sustainable.
