Textile Design – Embroidery.
My work embodies embroidery techniques which connect, distort and manipulate materials. My primary research has focused on extracting colour, textures and visual details from film stills then fragmenting these into collage and gestural mark making. I studied the delicate technique of insertion stitch which led to designing works that can be expanded, through additional stitch and interaction. This created a work which can shift and grow with the owner as their body and taste changes through time.
