I like to use discarded items, waste material no longer considered useful. My work is informed by personal experience, places visited, stories of my grandmother, old and forgotten textiles. Waste paper and fabrics are assembled and worked using a combination of textile and paper based techniques. I layer images; photos, drawings, text and fabric using glue transfer methods. These can be torn and scraped to reveal layers underneath. Stitch is necessary to hold the works together but also add colour or a line, like drawing.
