My practice involves combining new technologies with historical skills. Inspired by research into Tudor mark making, patterns and Armour. Each piece of Perspex is carefully hand sculptured and thoughtfully dyed with the laser cuts showing different intensity of colours. My research has taken me from fabric, needles and threads to hammers, chisels, nuts and bolts and laser machinery. Experimenting with nylon foils, stitch, folding and moulding of hot acrylics.
