Beauty in Fragility
textile, thread, wool, eco dyed fabrics


"This year 2020 brought deep introspection about the fragility of life.
My textile art work in natural fibres and natural ecological sustainable dyes, honours the Japanese Shibusa concept, pointing to slow handmade, subtle and unobtrusive beauty.
My latest series explores patina surfaces; the old re­invented, re-substituted to reveal fresh surfaces, but always with the sense of the older underlying layers.
Intrigued by the artwork's fragile elements; the knitting pieces add drama with their open or closed loops expressing connectivity and infinity, while simultaneously signaling open-ended, unraveled, incomplete aspects.
I strive to articulate the complex layers constituting humanity, how the fabric of our precious lives manifests in uncertain times."
