The Crafts Council asked me and 14 other leading artists to respond to the question ‘What Craft Means to Me’ and this is what I said-
“Craft is about making with meaning. It enables me to express myself through thread and fabric and to tell stories of place, history and belonging. Stitch connects me to my heritage, especially to my mother and ancestors who embroidered. Craft is about narrating stories, connecting people across borders and generations. Beyond the pure joy of creativity, my stitch practice offers me a contemplative space, comfort, community and connection. Craft is a powerful expression of all that I cherish and being able to practice it is a real privilege.”
