Artist Statement:

This work employs traditional and contemporary adaptations of embroidery to explore mapping, migration and identity. Fabric from thrift stores addresses my interest in including the touch of local people within my projects. A sense of temporary presence was an important thought for me, due to personal travel experiences. The tent therefore became a key image, as well as an architectural form. Using the geometric form of a parallelogram to represent the roof of the tent was vital for me, in different compositions on paper and tarpaulins.
