Stories We Tell Ourselves – memory and textiles


This body of work examines the relationship between worn and discarded textiles, their emotional associations with memory, and the narratives they generate. Each piece represents a unique story, imperfectly remembered, translated into ‘pictures’ of moments in time, and readings of relationships.

The interior of a garment holds the intimacy of the individual who wore it. Stains, fading, holes…the poetry of decay: all are important in my contemplation of memory. The mark of the hand and the imperfections of being human are central to my creative practice.
