My first project entitled ‘Working From Home’ is a collection of 4 embroidered illustrations, made for exhibition, reflecting a year spent studying during the pandemic. Approx. 14.8 x 21 cm is size, they each provide commentary on the consequences of the past year.
Embroidery is historically known for being a domestic craft so I felt that it would be the perfect vehicle for my creative expression. I wanted the lengthy, time consuming process of producing them to reflect the tediousness of working in lockdown and to rebel against the digital submission format by creating something fully crafted by hand, without the use of technology.
