  • Spurn Point Artist in Residence 2012

    Alice is Artist in Residence at Spurn Point Nature Reserve during 2012. Over a six-month period Alice will engage with and respond creatively to the unique landscape of Spurn, the life within it and the issues that face its future.

    During the residency Alice will create a body of work using textiles processes and printmaking techniques, bringing the two together through the use of stitch as texture, in collagraph prints, and as mark, in layers with print. The aim of this work will be to enrich public experience of the reserve and to take something of the essence of this fragile landscape to audiences beyond Spurn.

  • Spurn Point Artist in Residence 2012

    The residency culminates in an exhibition weekend at Spurn on 21-23rd September, followed by a gallery tour into 2013. The old lighthouse forms a studio base during the residency and a focus for the exhibition weekend.

    This project is in partnership with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and is supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

  • Fabric of the Building

    Fabric of the Building takes inspiration from sustainable contemporary architecture and, in particular, green surfaces. The hand-made stitch becomes the organic element growing on, from and through the wall. Paper and felt become the wall; impressions of stitch are made into the surface like hollows left in wet sand. Marks are printed on to the surface and stitches emerge from it. Digital manipulation takes textile-derived marks and allows them to grow across the surface of a building as if the stitches were being made through the wall itself. An organic form slowly builds up on the wall, constantly changing and developing so that the surface of the building is taken over by a newly populated surface of texture.


    Fabric of the Building questions the state of our contemporary built environment, references moves to introduce living surfaces to our concrete jungles as well as giving a gentle nod to historical flattened relief sculpture. Through this collection of artworks Alice suggests enlivening the surfaces of buildings in a novel, visually stimulating and sustainable way.


    The collection is made up of square units; each to be treated as an artwork in its own right or be combined with others, repeated or expanded. No piece forms a full stop: each is a moment captured, always leading on to further possibilities. Colour is subtle and evolutionary: it comes from the materials and processes used. Form and texture are dominant.

  • Fifteen Images

    Fifteen Images is a collaborative work in which music and textiles come together and interact to create a seamless immersive experience for the listener and viewer. This cross-discipline collaboration between a composer, a textile artist, a technologist and a performer was created by the research into practice group Textiles and Music Interact, supported by Plymouth University.


    The visual and musical aspects of Fifteen Images are truly interwoven. Both their roots lie in a set of defined colour combinations but the visual images provide the audience with a more immediate and accessible way into those colours. The transferral of the textural characteristics of the textile medium into a digital one and the use of subtle animation provide an exciting and innovative way into this project that gives a feast for the senses. The software driving the images and the interpretation of the performer mean that no two experiences of Fifteen Images will be the same. The audience is provided with a unique experience that combines textural and aural qualities.


    The textile pieces that form the basis of the digital images are an abstract response to combined experiences of the garden, the music and the landscape. Marks and textures inspired by these three starting points were developed in an intuitive way through drawing, print making, textile print and stitch and combined in digital layers to give a visual composition that makes up each image that the performer and the audience can interact with.
