ORIGINALS

For this series, Nesting, I worked with the materials I had around me throughout lockdown: pieces of wood, fabric from my stash, charcoal, acrylic, ink, pencil, chalk and oil pastels.

COLLAGE & MIXED MEDIA WORKS

I enjoy the variety of working with different materials: the way that thread can make a very fine line or a robust material; the way that printing with ink isn’t perfect.

Painting on wood, sanding it, cutting into it, building up layers and the happy accidents that present themselves are all part of the process.

The way that Bauhaus textile artist Anni Albers described the process of working with different materials resonates with me: "Being creative is not so much the desire to do something as listening to that which wants to be done: the dictation of the materials".
