Part of the Red Tape Project

Bound by Red Tape

My work as an artist is influenced by the people and the landscape of the small mill town where I grew up. I explore the form and structure of cloth and the process of creating fabric using simple techniques. The theme has given me the chance to look into the myths, mysteries and meanings and stories that surround Red Tape. The work for the exhibition is a personal response to the subject, working with weave and stitch to represent the lives of workers and red tape legacy.
