I am inspired by words, particularly the sound of the human voice and the person behind it.

Language through handwriting and the forming of letters in different cultures – ultimately the universal concept of breath forming a line through writing, painting and speech. The place where calligraphy and cloth meet; the emotion held in garments as a tactile canvas to reveal the living history of an individual as found in their handwritten letters. To pick up a needle as a ‘writing tool’ and work the line in thread taking it back to the person who wrote the original — similar to listening to music where the voice of the artist comes through.  This I call, ‘writing with a needle’ — to hand stitch by hand and eye the handwriting of any individual into a garment they might have worn.

I want to work with people who share this same attention to detail and an uncompromising approach to creativity.
