learn your fate !

Friday, 8 September 2017


I only have one week left of summer and I'm feeling all those pre-unknown sort of nerves about starting uni. I've realised it's not just me - everyone seems to be having stressful dreams and troubled sleep recently; I hope it's something that will go as we get more settled. So much is changing right now.
These photos were taken, once again, in wales; I found a collection of vintage fairground pieces and couldn't help but get involved as I adore the circus and fairground atmosphere and aesthetic. Also, I bloody love my horoscope and having my future told and so any chance of a fortune reading (not like Zoltar from the film Big, though, maybe) and I'm there.






The patchwork jacket is from Beyond Retro, and is one of those pieces I just couldn't resist. It's one of the rare pieces that's sort of grown with me and I just have to have, no matter how my style evolves. The shoes are my big knee high Demonia platforms. There is also a variety of lace and silk slips and tops involved.



I also have some  new work up on De Wallen collective. They are two soft sculptures bringing my recent research drawings into the physical world. Machine embroidery depicts abstracted images from my research into tinnitus and hearing, with the fabric then distorted by strong elastic and the pieces then suspended, disjointed from one another and bold against the pale background. They represent the discordant sounds of experiencing tinnitus, the feeling of being separate and standing out, and the discomforting presence of the hearing disorder as something bold and hard to escape or see past. See more work from myself and De Wallen's artist's here.





In other news - I got my first tattoo yesterday! I had been wanting it forever, and managed to convince Alexi and Ellen to come with me (Ellen ended up getting one as well). I got a scorpion as I love my star sign and feel it sort of marks me becoming a fully grown Scorpio woman. We went to Brighton for the day to get it and had such a chill day of vegan pizzas, buckfast on the beach and antiques browsing. I did take proper film photos of the day but haven't got them developed yet.
Have a lovely weekend!
