I’m from England, and my art draws on studies in architecture and design. My artworks are often created through collaborations with directly impacted communities. At BRIClab I am developing elements of these and solo projects. They include sewn and stuffed organza and vinyl pieces for wearable and upholstered works, and ceramic images made from numerous small sections.
I use ink, building materials, upcycled fabrics and ceramics to connect buoyant struggles for justice to domestic dreams. I reimagine demands for basic rights such as housing and freedom to migrate, in imagery co-opted from interior decoration, official signs and supposedly impassable barriers. My current projects seek to bring the drawn and painted visions of people who have survived prison, into the public realm, to open unexpected portals for solidarity.
