Artist's Statement

 

Lazy Sundays. The Fields. The Tower. The Book. That Night

Memories swim and swirl through my mind

A smile, a shiver, the darkness takes control

And all that is left is this overwhelming sense of longing;

That precious moment I can no longer reach.

 

My new collection (Be)Longing is a deeply personal narrative of my past, present and future; of distant memories and dark influences. Taking inspiration from the urban environment in which I have immersed myself, I intuitively create flowing forms of weathered surfaces which evoke a sense of bittersweet melancholy. Using both tradtional and innovative materials, I subvert and surprise the senses, creating a tangible connection between myself and the wearer. 

 

With each piece I get closer to myself and where I (Be)Long.
