About

Jessica creates bold and tactile explorations of colour and pattern through hand stitching and embellishments. Her textiles use a combination of processes including hand embroidery, dyeing, and embellished surfaces.

Jessica utilises a variety of mixed media and recycled materials. These materials are transformed and manipulated to create intricate embellishments. This juxtaposition of unusual media with traditional techniques invites the viewer to look closer – creating curiosity.
