artwork

A simultaneous introduction to several craft practices sparked interest in designing multidisciplinary pieces for their pleasing interchange of aesthetic qualities. Borrowing techniques from printmaking and illustration and translating them to vitreous enamelling and rug hooking, I enjoy the challenge of integrating art practices with craft materials. Thus, inspired by process, the subjects of my work – often forms from nature – act more as a means of practicing technique, focusing attention to the qualities of the juxtaposed surfaces and uniting them, than as muses themselves. Influenced by the philosophies of the Bloomsbury artists – primarily, a shared rejection of the distinction between fine and decorative art – my work is a collection of wall art and art jewellery made with the intention of evoking aesthetic emotion through aesthetic qualities.
