Reclaiming and repurposing materials to use in my art has been my practice for years. I use meditative hand stitching and mending of vintage linen, alongside my industrial sewing machine to stitch and collage layers of translucent single use plastics which would otherwise contribute to litter pollution. The contradiction of my materials and subject matter – flimsy plastics, vintage linens and manmade symbols of progress and power– useful and damaging– are the underpinnings for the social, environmental and political narrative that defines my work.
