Inspired by people in all shapes, sizes and weirdness, I like to find images of “beautiful” people and show them in a different light. It all started after I created a series of embroidered portraits centred around highlighting mental illness. This led to the discovery of the loveliness of random threads joining different parts of the person together, showing the inner parts of that person. I like to think that when I produce a portrait in this way it shows a deeper meaning to that person rather than just how they look, as they end up looking so distorted but yet still alluring.
