meet the artist part 3 – medium

Studio news/blog

I work mainly with discarded inner-tubes from tyres. I prefer to use the inner-tubes of trucks or tractors and re-purpose it to function as my ‘canvases’ for the embroideries.Β  I source the inner-tubes (rubber) from local tyre companies and my husband is a diesel mechanic for a construction company and he works with earth-moving vehicles.

Whereas other husbands bring their wives flowers, he brings me inner tubes;-)
