HELLO AND WELCOME!
I am inspired by words, particularly the sound of the human voice and the person behind it.
Language through handwriting and the forming of letters in different cultures – ultimately the universal concept of breath forming a line through writing, painting and speech.
The place where calligraphy and cloth meet; the emotion held in garments as a tactile canvas to reveal the living history of an individual as found in their handwritten letters.
To pick up a needle as a ‘writing tool’ and work the line in thread taking it back to the person who wrote the original — similar to listening to music where the voice of the artist comes through. This I call, ‘writing with a needle’ — to hand stitch by hand and eye the handwriting of any individual into a garment they might have worn.
I want to work with people who share this same attention to detail and an uncompromising approach to creativity.
To create living vibrant letters for branding logos signage fonts
To create bespoke works of art of museum quality for this and future generations
To empathise with a story and re tell it for stage, film, and music industry
To create couture pieces of cloth for global fashion houses
To create a ‘writing with a needle’ service where individuals and companies can commission hand embroidered labels and branding and VIP bespoke commissioned gifts
To work with high end clients and provide a hands on ‘craft experience’ using calligraphy, lettering and hand stitch
To work with graphic designers and brand agencies to create more ‘craft-like’ practices and processes within a digital work space
