A photograph of a person is a window into their life, when I look at old photographs of people I used to know or of family members once lost I create stories for them, a reason for that moment to be recorded forever. My work takes these moments using various old photos and creates something delicate and beautiful with them capturing that moment in an original bespoke version. Using stitch and print I recreate photographs for people creating an heirloom to be passed down through the generations, quite often I turn these artworks into quilts to be continued to be added to using old photographs and new or my work is framed and kept as a personal piece for the home. My work is usually commission based making it completely personal to the buyer.
