The Process.

To me, creating art is creating energy. My aim is to create pieces that allow the viewer to walk away feeling invigorated and connected to themselves. 

My process always starts very free and becomes more disciplined near the end. I use off cuts of heavy-duty selvedge denim as it is a medium I know extremely well and would be destined for waste if I did not use it. I use a mixture of bleach and dyes to manipulate denim into organic textures. I try not to hold on tightly to a particular outcome in mind because it’s always the happy accidents that work out the best.

I then take the time to stitch these textiles together to make curved compositions. It is when I start to apply layers of paint with a palette knife and soak in layers of diluted pigments. This allow me to create textures and tones that evoke a sense of moment and calm.
