My practice mainly involves the use of textiles and specifically patchwork. Working in this medium creates a definite tension and there is conflict about whether it conforms to traditional concepts of craft, fashion, design or fine art. My work brings into question this notion of craft/ contemporary art and what the distinctions are, and discover whether work has to be one or the other, or whether it can exist as both. The work itself has come from a personal place and has conceptual underpinning. It deals with the idea of memories - or what we think we have as memories - and some are narratives that have been handed down to me by family.
