I graduated from the Kent Institute of Art and Design with a BA(Hons) in Fine Art
in 2003. My Grandmother taught me to sew and embroider when I was a child
and I started using fabrics and embroidery in my work during the second stage
of my degree.
I am interested in how we see things and how we interpret what we see. Why are
some bodies considered beautiful, and others ugly or disgusting? I want to
investigate how the media and methods used change how the content of the
work is seen. Does using materials and techniques traditionally associated with
prettiness and gentility change the response to the work?
