Stitching it all together

‘Stitching it all together’ is an ongoing body of work started in 2018, exploring the memories that people have associated with textiles and clothing, through a process of experimentation using sewing and stitch. Materials are layered and text inserted onto clothing, shoes, domestic items, and natural materials Some pieces reflect thoughts on my transition into motherhood and personal memories and others are experiments with materials and techniques.

I use domestic items such as washing lines, pegs, and clothes combined with natural objects with a personal story attached to them- leaves from walks with my son and pebbles from family holidays to create hangings and installations with these pieces.
