“In my jackets, I am reporting on some of the daily phenomena that I have witnessed in the natural world around me—butterflies in the mist, the surprising beauty of a spider’s web, light and shadow in a field, the lively round of life and death in the pond.
I start with a line—a piece of thread, and loop it, dye it, layer it into a sculptural form that people can wear. To me that is a satisfactory transformation. Dense layers of stitches describe dramatic moments in the lives of some of the smaller inhabitants of the beautiful world around us”.
Knitted and dye painted perle cotton embroidered with cotton threads.
