What stories do you like to tell with your craft?
The stories are not specific to me. They are the collaboration between my own perceptions and experiences expressed through my craft and the audience's interpretation.
That connection is what makes the stories.
Embroidery can serve a function (e.g. mending or joinery) but often, and in your work specifically, it feels like pure giddy embellishment, beauty for the sake of beauty. What does that practice feel like?
The practice is like a ceremony, I consider it like a spiritual practice, exploring natural thoughts about life.
What I do with my hands matters more than ever to me!
Especially in these days, we are being ushered into a virtual isolated world where hyper speed is the default setting. A life led like embroidery is beneficial and necessary, stitch by stitch, row by row, slowing down, simply being in your practice in the present moment.
How do you want to feel in your clothes?
Comfortable and functional.
