I have been thinking for much of this year about the relationship between my drawing practice and my textile practice. I don’t feel they need to be the same but I’m interested in their different aspects and how they relate.
This series has been influenced by my attempts to increase my range of mark-making in drawing, through taking some online courses, and the range with which I feel confident and comfortable.
One of the differences between the two parts of my practice is the materiality of felt, in particular the potential for embedding elements within the fibre and concealing and revealing them, by design or by chance.
The considered mark-making and the happy chance combine here to create different atmospheres, often related to landscapes I have been studying.
