«This series is an exploration of the emotive qualities of color and texture. Drawing on a wide range of inspirations and intuitions these works provided me an honest space to process and reflect on aspects of textiles, painting and drawing which most excite me. Through exploring combinations of these materials, I was able to find new relationships between them and investigate personal symbology and hidden meanings behind repeated choices made in my aesthetic practice.»
