The wonder of flight and migration is the inspiration for this work.
Traditional embroidery techniques are worked and pushed to their extremes in order for these constructions to include drawings, revealing the liberation and joy of seabirds. Paper cut-outs, which include graphite and oil painted marks, are trapped within layers of tissue paper with machine embroidery.
Paper Textiles combine stitch, coloured pigments, shellac and gold leaf. All applied directly to machine embroidered paper.
