About Me

My work has developed a lot over the 3 years I've studied for my degree. It has evolved into a body of work that deals with the human form as an environment. I've mapped and explored my own body inside and out in many ways through print, drawing and various media as a type of research to address self identity

I've been trying out emulsion transfers on fabric. First I tried them on a dust sheet. major fail. The weave is too big and the surface isnt smooth enough. The images did transfer but they are indistinguishable. 

So I tried an old curtain I had which was a smooth cotton and this is how it turned out. It still has the old graininess I wanted, but the image is quite clear. I'm hoping to do a series of these and sew over them with machine drawings.

Welcome to my blog! :)

This page is primarily a documentation of my art work I create. I'm a BA Fine Art, Mixed Media Student currently in my final year of my degree.

My work deals with ideas of the fragility of the human condition and often consists of images of my own body. I tend to work with materials that reflect the delicacy of the human form such as stitch and fabrics. My drawing style i like to describe as a "nervous" line, which also ties in with the themes of all my work.
