This is the completed poster for the exhibition we've been organising in Solihull at the end of the month. The theme will be loosely based around the idea of 'The Domestic' and will be a mix of applied and fine art.
The exhibiting artists are: Myself, Natalia Komis, Nick Stamp and Lauren Hudson.
I am a textile artist specialising in mixed media design with ceramics.
In my work I explore the everyday rituals and traditions that we are all so familiar with. I have an ongoing preoccupation with the ideas surrounding the family as well as woman's role within society and the home. This is a strong theme which runs through my work.
I have a particular fascination with the oppression of women through traditional textile techniques.
The themes of my work are also inspired by the materials I work with: found papers, fabrics and crockery.
