My work has evolved from initial training as a basket maker to ongoing experimentation with sculptural twining techniques using primarily commercially produced paper string from Asia and Finland. Whilst a thorough grounding in technical execution and attention to detail underpins the work, I like to break rules and explore where the techniques can take me.
This wearable art ensemble is inspired by my love of the camellia genus, Chinese folklore, and theatre.
