MA work

Water is fascinating. I am inspired by the many forms and changeability of water – how it can reflect, refract, distort and affect its environment. Water can evoke emotional responses and alter the way we see, experience and interpret our surroundings.

The intention of my work is to communicate the idea that one thing can be interpreted in many different ways. I have designed a collection of multi-functional knitted garments that enable the wearer to interact with the pieces, encouraging experimentation with the numerous possibilities of each design.
