By using craft as an art form I am provided with rich social and historical connotations crucial to the work I produce. I created a Ferrari because it is instantly recognisable and the opposite of what people expect from something that is knitted. Bringing binary opposites together results in the work becoming appealing to a mixture of audiences. I want as many people as possible to see and enjoy my work- including those who wouldn’t ordinarily go to an art gallery. I enjoy the fact that people leave my exhibits with a smile on their face. I believe that by using an optimistic slant through creativity, it can be significant in portraying deeper meaning.
