Alice is an award-winning multi-disciplinary textile designer, specialising in interactive and sensory wellbeing artwork. She utilises discarded fabrics to address the current imbalance between material use, waste and the effect on the natural environment. Her work highlights the importance of the natural world and brings biophilic design into urban interiors by creating tactile wearable art and multi-functional interior products. She uses unwanted materials, traditional craft techniques and new technologies to support wellbeing and connectivity to nature.
There is growing evidence that urban residents may suffer from Nature Deficit Disorder because of the lack of access to green spaces either personal or communal. Consequently, they are alienated from the regenerative and therapeutic experiences of nature. The recent and ongoing lockdown due to COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of being in nature for supporting wellbeing but also how urban residents are deprived from easy access to such spaces. Her aspirations are to use textiles to create playful community spaces inspired by nature. With the aims to interactively promote natures ability to improve personal wellbeing which are grounded in a holistic, socially and environmentally considered philosophy.
Alice is based in London.
