Artist Statement

My practice is an original fine art concept that reconfigures the woven label. The work is constantly negotiating the boundaries between the process of making (craft) and understanding life through material (fine art). I have developed my own language by unpicking 30,000 used labels from rag garments. The used labels are organised into colour and size groups and assembled in images using only dressmaker pins. 

I continue to collaborate with Savile Row tailors, using thousands of bespoke labels to create historic portraits from their archive. I also commission my own woven labels using information from historic events and assemble them in contemporary images.
