I like exploring a range of textile techniques including embroidery, surface design and digital print. At the moment my focus is on combining traditional techniques like patchworking with contemporary style. I dyed these second hand fabrics to match the current colour palette so I got exactly the colours I wanted whilst also considering sustainability. I drew and collaged different floral forms and then translated them into stitch whilst considering the patterned background that a patchwork provides.
