For ‘in Search of Green’ a series of garments are suspended from tree branches. The gossamer thin pieces are almost ghostly, an ethereal presence, delicate as memory. These garments reference a personal and sensuous response to moving through landscape.

‘Walking along the river bank with the ground still snow-covered the work captures the search for new green leaves as a sign of awakening spring. Her walk is represented as abstract map-like marks on cloth; sometimes marking a route or the memory of sparkling birdsong. Hand-embroidery is used both to alter the surface and as a method of drawing.’

Exhibited at The Bowery, Headingley, Leeds
