The focus of my current work is the effects of dementia on both memory and identity. Some early pieces explore the innocuous language used to describe memory loss, when the reality is far from that.
My present work is attempting to explore how memory fragments, is often out of context, and affects other people as well as the person with the condition.
As part of the textile group unFOLD, I created a piece of work for the Curious as an Object exhibition at the 2016 Knitting & stitching shows. The work depicts sound, tidal ranges, and findings from the beach all presented in a linear diary format for the year. This work has given me the confidence to tackle ideas outside of my existing series on dementia and apply concepts of identity and the human condition to other work.
