Drawing with needle and thread was a skill I'd been keen to explore, so in 2011, I set myself a challenge.
Over the year, as I experimented with technique, my stitched portraits became more layered and detailed.
These are my favourites, so I've transformed them into high quality digital prints for you to buy, starting at £125.
'Body and Cloth - Move Through Space' shows a sample of the dance costumes that I design and make. The video features extracts from, 'Freak' and 'Red'.
'Red' was choreographed by Sheron Wray, and performed at the Royal Opera House, by her dance company JazzXchange.
'Freak' was a personal project. The costume design developed from an intention to illustrate the complexities surrounding the use of ones skin to communicate to others. In particular I was concerned with our conflicting views as a society of what is perceived as beauty.
