Stitched Paper Icons

 

Stitched Paper Icons honors the delicacy in items worn, torn and discarded. Each work is an assemblage of plant dyed paper offcuts, aligned, hand stitched and

re-presented to celebrate their fragile beauty.

Through these works I explore my passion for iconography and ritual practices, a passion I hold awkwardly as I am not a devotee of any formal religion.
