Archive & Other Stories

After months of hard work my exhibition Archive & Other Stories is ready to deliver to Whitby Museum next week. The exhibition is called Archive & Other Stories and has been two years in the making.

“My practice uses fabric and thread to tell stories, my aim in working with Whitby Museum was to interpret their collections in a different way. Each piece from the exhibition tells a story about my life, using pieces from the museum’s archive as a reference point.”

I’m lucky to work with a fantastic photographer, Mat Dale. I’ve been working with him for the last three years and his style of photography really compliments my work. Here are a few of the images from the collection.

The exhibition brings together a collection of new and reinterpreted works inspired by the museum and the Whitby coastline. There will be a launch event at 1.00pm on Saturday 15 September where you can tour the exhibition and enjoy a cup of tea and a piece of cake with me.
