As a South African artist am I currently embracing embroidery as my primary art form as it is the intimate, slow time consuming way of drawing with thread that grounds me in our fast paced society. I have always treated embroidery as a drawing with each stitch likened to the stroke of a pencil, another way to leave a mark.
Inspiration comes from the collaboration of many elements: cultural significance, life and death, music, colour and tribal art.
