I have started off by drawing and collaging images together using ink on acetate and sewing into photographs. My intial plan was to add drawings to patterned paintings as I don’t really use imagery within my work and therefore I wanted to try something new. 

    

On a piece of canvas I have  started using embroidery instead of painting the images on as it gives the piece a more subtle and delicate feel to it.

 

I am interested in collaging as I like the way you can overlap and place different backgrounds behind the images  and add elements to give a new approach and meaning to the work.
