'My works are bound by their process and by an interest in domestic creativity.
'During lockdown I created watercolour paintings of my sculptures in progress crowding my bookshelves. I then photographed these and had them digitally printed on linen, which was cut up and wrapped across the painting surface, and painted over.
'My works are created through a collage-like accumulative process of layering, combining painted and printed fabrics with painting. I make clay sculptures simultaneously alongside the paintings, and the paintings often depict the sculptures.
'There is an interchangeability between the material characteristics of textiles and printing, painting and sculpture.'
