ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a textile artist and designer; my practice includes observation and analysis of people both individually and as anonymous members of society. My ideas develop through drawings, photography, silkscreen printing, various textile practices and installation. I am curious about people (myself included), our relationships, connection to nature, the spaces we inhabit, and aspects of life we keep private or choose to share publicly.

In attempt to discover the originality and uniqueness of each individual, I often study their bodies and physicality. Sometimes I create controlled situations where I can illustrate the differences in behaviour. Other times I document people as collective, linked elements of society. I am interested in people as a dominant species who significantly impact their environment. A careful observation of my surroundings and accidental recording of events often ignite a discovery, which leads to extensive research.

My practice is continually evolving while my technical skills are being refined. I am always learning new and improved ways of working. Recently, my research has been focused on working with natural dyes, which allows me to develop a greater appreciation for nature and supports my efforts in sustainable art practice. I carefully choose and create the imagery I work with to communicate my ideas and interests. My desire is to produce technically complex, multilayered, large-scale prints that can become fashion and home décor pieces or parts of installations. In drawing and other media, it culminates with readiness to study difficult situations in all scales and with various techniques.
