MA work

With my work I want to open eyes to the material world. I want to touch people, awaken the senses and encourage others not only to see but also to feel; to create moments of real physical contact.


For me, textiles provide the natural materials to create moments that generate an inquisitive response and encourage engagement and joy. It is a broad-ranging discipline based on material exploration, colour and tactile experience. By using these tangible qualities, I aim to make work that triggers an emotional response, work that can be touched and that touches you back!
