How do I describe my work? Maybe with these words . . . .
dye, fold, twist, clamp, stitch, indigo, textiles, cyanotype, research, photograph, expose, develop, print . . .
They are the elements I use individually or in combination to piece together and capture memories on cloth. I also make artist’s books using the same mixture of materials techniques and processes.
The library has special collections which include a collection of over 200 artists’ books.
Doreen works in partnership with tutors and runs sessions where the artists’ books collection can be handled and explored. These sessions are part of Library Matters which are events and exhibitions that the Library holds throughout the year to tie in with students’ studies.
