Artist statement: I Only Iron for My Art, 2024. Part of a series of still life works that explore my studio through objects, books, and tools of my trade. Each work is a self-portrait using items to address different components of my life and work. To create the work, I have used hand embroidery with a painted acrylic background that references the woven woollen blankets I have in my studio. This one is a tongue in cheek reference to domesticity and art, in that I despise ironing except for when it is for creating art. It also includes some key books that are part of my collection that fill the bookshelves in my studio.
