My 3D fabric microphone in action. Captured in black and white, it is seeminlgy unsuspecting but a closer look shows the cross-hatch stitched detail of the mouthpeice and reveals it as an imitation object.
The installation display of my individual leaves for assessment. The artificial light casts unusual and beautiful shadows on the wall; the hanging leaves create varied definition of shadow and add depth to the display.
As part of my Uni project work I am looking at making artificial objects from everyday life and placing them back into the environment. This is my experiment dressing bare trees with my cut-out foam and paper leaves. The leaves go almost unnoticed, but a closer look or double take reveals they are unnatural.
I hand craft greetings cards for all sorts of occassions, and I am more than happy to take commissions! I am also a Textile Artist creating hand stitched images reinterpreted from drawn observations of the nature and environment around me.
