At the beginning of this project I was thinking about mental illnesses and how that takes away the feeling of being real or living in reality, as well as how that puts the person into a ‘different world’. I went on to think about different worlds and conspiracy theories and made drawings that suggested our world was created by and observed by aliens. Further to this I constructed other fictional or alternate worlds before returning to that of pagan ritual, witchcraft and religious festivities and Satanism.  

The textile workshop made me realise that I really enjoy hand embroidery, and so I returned to this process. 

Religions in themselves create other realities, such as heaven and hell, and I wanted to look at how tarot cards and spiritualistic beliefs do a similar thing, so my work evolved from these elements.
