Biography

Concepts Essentially I am interested in temporal and fugitive processes, memory traces, fragility, narrative. Influences European, female, narrative(s), ongoing, recurring Career path Studied on the Textiles course at Goldsmiths, University of London (1985). South West Arts Awards during the early 1990s allowed me to explore specific themes in my work. i.e. relics of 'The Golden Legend' related to Saint Ursula. Work published in 'Intimations of Mortality' ('Fragile Icons'), Arts Council, 1994. Postgraduate training in Fine Art, University of Plymouth (2000) enabled me to reflect on and re-assess my practice. Visual work crosses a number of disciplines often inter-related. Processes associated with textile practice are evident. In particular, layering, piecing together, re-assembling, drawn and stitched mark making. I have an interest in 'the garment' (reclaimed or re-constructed) as marker of event and experience.
