Festival: 2019

I work entirely with found materials to create three-dimensional quirky outdoorsy people.

I’m “materials led” so the materials that I stumble across are always the inspiration. A piece of driftwood too small to use as a base, will become a skateboarders’ board; an empty parcel tape roll, might become a perambulator; old maps are always useful props for walkers and runners.

Wherever practical I hand stitch, as well as creating texture and individuality, the slowness of the process is integral to developing the characters of the pieces.
