In today’s world we are constantly bombarded by ‘noise’, notifications, loudness, constant whirr of technology and humanity.
These images form part of a new project on the power of timelessness and meditation and repetition.

I wanted to use my camera’s multiple exposure functions and a muted colour palette to portray a meditative experience I get when doing cross-stitch. In the exhibition there will be some tiny images printed on fabric and stitched and some very large images that I hope will be fluid in nature by being printed on fabric…..
