The foundation of my creative practive is influenced by texture and colour. My current work uncovers the stunning microscopic landscapes that are unseen by the naked eye. Exploring the beautiful minute forms of the weft and weave of the sculptural fibre pieces I make to create delicate textural imagery and environments. I use a marriage of handmade sculptural textiles and various new technologies, such as 3D virtual software, electron microscopes, lasers, x-ray diffraction and digital photography to create my work. Science and ‘New Technologies’ constantly inform my work on both a technical and creative level. I graduated from The University of Salford in 2002 and I have been practicing as an artist since then, I am currently artist in residence at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester and I am on the Setting Up Scheme funded by ACE NW. I have exhibited in Barcelona and Manchester. I am also undertaking a commission and I will be commencing a residency at UMIST Crystal and Colloid Dept early in 2004.
