My work incorporates the vintage snapshot with the creative, rarely seen, combination of drawing with embroidery. The idea involves photographic representation drawn toward the three dimensionality recognised in photo-sculpture caused by the intervention of the thread through the surface of the print. In an act of appropriation, the acquisition of an archive inspired my investigation into the personal and intimate lives of a hitherto unknown family. My creative response develops the findings and expands the potential and context for its reading.
