Anomaly (Series I) 

 The ‘Anomaly Series I’, uses a photo stencil of hand-knitted wire and knitting needles as the starting point for developing and exploring imagery to visualize the healing aspect of stitch during what was a traumatic experience. My series portrays the two-fold aspects of physical and emotional healing; casting one stitch, then many, knitting into each and creating a fabric is a process which heals and protects the psyche, much like human cells that replicate to produce tissue that binds, seals and protects. Stitch can therefore be seen as a metaphor for growth and renewal, and a healing and mending of both mind and body.
