A woven wall hanging for Ophelia Mikkelson-Jones' exhibition at Parlour Projects, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand (November to December 2019). For 'A Place To Picnic' we were inspired by a Agnes Martin grid work, tartans and plaids found on picnic blankets and Ophelia’s colour palette.

This cross stitch project was part of a textile exhibition at Corban Estate Arts Centre, Auckland, New Zealand (August to September 2019). Working with my Mum, the project represents over 200 hours of stitching and over 22,000 individual cross stitches. The project translated the tartan pattern found on the low cost and mass produced Hong Kong Shopper or Ahmah bags into cross stitch.
The handwoven Hourglass series, was installed on Samuel Tupou’s wall painting at Cement Fondu contemporary art space in Sydney, Australia (June to July 2019).
