Daddy Bears uses her knowledge of pattern cutting for garments to create 3D objects away from the body. To be able to fill a space with twisted fantasy sculptures feels like a fresh take on traditional techniques which are rarely seen to be manipulated in this way.

The use of intense repetitive hand sewing featured throughout her practice is a testament to ‘women’s work’ and a labour of love. These intimate techniques are used to help emote feelings of romance, escapism and humour. Her work references ideas of transitional objects, childhood and adult forms of play, and a nostalgia for obsessive toy collections.

Her recent solo show, ‘Shiny, Sexy, Soft’ with Roman Road gallery displayed a mixture of furniture like sculptures shown in parallel with large digitally printed wall hangings.
