As Project Curator History, I am currently researching stories of the people and places that make up Auckland, bringing to light some of the hidden moments from our city’s history. I am particularly interested in collecting objects that reflect contemporary life in Auckland – where people eat, work, and socialise. In addition to this work, I have a broad knowledge of textiles and fashion with a focus on print and pattern-making techniques.
I am interested in how social history can be read through textiles, and what they reveal about the attitudes and values of an era. My research style includes learning-through-doing, and I have experimented with screenprinting, dressmaking, shibori dyeing, linocut printing, stencilling, quilting, needlework and jewellery making.
