For my Graduate Show I worked on lichen, texture, forms and mark making in nature by manipulating dyed flax fibre and free motion machine embroidery on soluble film. My work was inspired by beaches and surrounds. I like creating light and delicate work mainly for walls, and my future plan is to build 3D sculptures with textiles and combined materials too.
