County: Neath Port Talbot
My work incorporates my love of Art, Textiles, the Environment, and Recycling. Using my botanical printing, rust dying and stitch, I create a visual delight for people to Adore and Adorn. Each day I walk my dog through the beautiful forests or by the canals and rivers in South Wales and collect many different leaves to create my botanical prints. I have one eye on the beauty around me and one eye on the floor as I look for post-industrial steel objects, discarded as the valleys industries left the countryside with which to create my unique rust dyed pieces. I also search out the general everyday metal waste left in the streets and roads. The unique colours from the rusted objects and leaves are enhanced with teas from my travels.
