I will be selling my limited edition collage works titled ‘All the clothes I have ever thought about…’ at £2 each throughout the open studio weekend. You may also find me in some other clothes……

You can also view my work ‘In 1962 the birth control pill was available…’ in the South Gallery at Phoenix Brighton until the 27th May. Open Wed – Sun 11 am – 5 pm.

‘Offerings’ will bring together new and existing works from 2010-2017, including woven anti-form sculpture and hair-works. These works uses a mixed palette of old, unwanted clothing, hair and domestic related textile items as raw materials, and often depart from personal or collective experiences and explores themes around the body, femaleness, re-invention, textile histories and craft-labour. As from the 19th February I will be in residence at R-Space Gallery, installing the exhibition. As part of the exhibition I will be working in the Gallery while open to the public, finalising the installation on 27th and 28th February 2018, drop in and have a chat with me about the work in situ.
