My name is Kim, and I’m an artist and maker.
I love to echo structures and processes from nature in my art, from the mathematical basis for a spiral shell to the chemistry of leaf prints on pavements.
I live in Brixton, south London, which offers plenty of opportunities to observe the interaction between urban life and nature, providing inspiration and sometimes materials for my practice. Nature is often ephemeral, but I relish trying to capture its essence in more permanent form in my work.
With a strong focus on form and materiality, my favourite techniques are basketry, wet felting, and natural dyeing.
My work is inspired by the natural world, and I often incorporate found objects in my pieces, making cord from dead daffodil stems or weaving bindweed into vessels.
I regularly take part in exhibitions with Prism Textiles and South London Women Artists, as well as selling at fairs and markets.
