I use graffiti techniques, layering colour and images with resin to make wearable objects. The pieces are often self-referential with the image as the link or method of attachment: a drawing of sewing hands embroiders a brooch to a garment or an engraving of drawing hands draws a line around the neck to secure a brooch. Each object is a fragment of my body and its unusual placement on the body, draws the attention of the viewer. Drawn or engraved images on the matte surface of the resin give the impression of a tattoo.
The photographs I produce alongside the pieces inform my making practice, while being creative works in their own right. They are often sequences of images captured in flick books and illustrating fragments of time during the making process.
I documented my artistic practice on my apron, building up marks with drawing and embroidery. The resin pieces are a translation of this process into objects.
I see my work as occupying two planes: striking imagery of the body and striking imagery for the body.
