Fusing ancient organic textile techniques with modern digital manipulation to produce beautiful Artworks. Complex, Ethereal images which speak of connections between past, present and future. A perfect antidote to the mundane. Investigating micro and macro worlds with images taken from different scales of perspective.
Unique combination of processes starting with Macro; original textile pictures. Semi-abstract images of natural phenomena created by hand felting, embroidery & mixed media collage building up layers rich in symbolism with colour & geometric forms hidden within the picture.
Then tiny details are captured, the Micro part of the process where digital manipulation creates a new emergent image representing the conceptual nature of the original piece.
This new image is then expanded back to Macro again. Printed at high resolution onto Aluminium Sheet. Enhancing details, colours and providing incredible depth and texture. With no frame, freeing the image from the confines of a border gives a modern, contemporary feel. Art without Borders.
