Inside Colour

Exploring textile and fabric as an artistic medium is what has driven my work. Inspired by Sheila Hicks and Jenny Rask, this medium has allowed an exploration into creating interesting forms, using multiple colours and involving sensory touch, to align with the human form.  Having started with wall mounted fabric cultures, I decided, like paintings that these were two dimensionally restrictive. By expanding the environment and suspending the pieces in space, the work has morphed into developing multi-dimensional human form work, using environmental positioning and allowing full audience participation.
