Alongside my installation and performance work, I create limited editions of original art work available for purchase.
You can find out about them here.
A portrait of Lee Miller from a Man Ray photograph, Lee Miller is drawn and hand stitched into repurposed cotton I have hand dyed with avocado skins and stones. The dye process takes two to three days, hass avocado skins produce a dark tannin colour, and the stones of avocados blush with a pinky peachy hue. The process yields variation in colour hue across the fabric and no two dye batches are the same, I work towards zero or low waste cutting and frame portraits with or without glass.
The image is transferred to cloth and hand stitched, it is then pressed and stretched into the frame.
