tactile paintings

slabs + constructs

SLABS and CONSTRUCTS are a series of wall-mounted sculptural reliefs and objects, inspired by urban imperfection. Concrete and plaster contrast with deconstructed textiles, stitched threads and found materials to suggest graffiti and layered paint on broken buildings.

SLAB PAINTINGS are an ongoing series of abstract sculptural paintings. An experimental accumulation of contrasting materials combine to create tactile pieces that straddle the line between painting and sculpture. 

Who am I?

I am a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in London.

My background in fashion design and love of textiles has laid the foundation for my artistic process. I continue to conceive unorthodox ways to manipulate textiles and combine them with unexpected materials.

I’m drawn to discarded and imperfect materials that possess the ability to build form and hold memories of passing time.
