Installations – Broderies

One Day – 2009/10

I survived this dream – 2009/10

These textile installations are in continuity with my painting and previous textile sculptures. I’m inspired by creating a strange and poetic world of cross breed animal-plants and anthropomorphic nature using textiles, painting, drawing, photography and collage.

I’m mainly interested in showing that however hard one tries to control one’s emotions, there will always be a wild creature inside us. An untameable spirit from the dark ages of humanity lives within the madness of our dreams and nightmares.

Such a shaman or a healer, I worked on my installation with the belief that it would speak to this spirit. Animal/human/plant gods appear to hold the secrets of our demons. Paths and dead ends run through the textile landscapes. Nonsensical scenes are intermingled with symbols of love & death.

I make objects that look like they have magical powers and are part of cult rituals.

Therefore they have a purpose beyond representation…

One Day will be exhibited at the Norman Rae Gallery, York (UK), for 2 weeks, from the 15th Feb 2010.

Contemporary Embroidery on Bespoke Hats

Here is a series of unique embroideries. I take commissions for specific designs and I also create limited edition compositions on Hatter Jill Corbett’s hats. If you wanted a hat made to your specification I can make it more unique with a personal embroidery touch!

Maybe you  have an item of clothing you would like embroidered to make it a bit more special? Contact me with a request and I’ll see what I can do.
