Heritage Uncovered is a project highlighting the issues faced by museums during times of conflict. Many of the precious artefacts are stored for security or worse, damaged or destroyed. The objects created for this exhibition reflect the treasures which were on display at museums in Syria before the current conflict and can now only be seen in books.
I am a textile artist based in East Durham.
I work with a variety of textile techniques including embroidery, applique, weaving and felt making to create pieces inspired by the local area and much further afield.
I have travelled widely and use inspiration from around the world investigating traditional textile techniques and materials.
I have a special interest in African textiles and give talks on African fabrics to interested groups.
