Artist Statement

“We live in the cities. The cities live in us.” – Wim Wenders

Cities have character, they have personality. They reflect the times and places in which they are built just as they come to represent the people who live and work within their borders. My work seeks to build a bridge between textiles and the built environment. Through different lacemaking techniques, I explore concepts within architecture and urban planning, investigating ideas of span and space, form and pattern, social construction, gently stepping between the natural and the built world. We change our cities, but our cities also change us.
