"My machine embroidered narratives reflect my affection for ancient landscape and express more personal themes of love, fragility, fear and loss. The atmosphere in the imagery is airless, the space internal. During my MA last year, I worked with imagery and themes relating to the cyclical nature of life and archetypes of the feminine. I began to use gold as a metaphor for transformation. My interest in life’s ephemeral nature and the feminine are symbolised in the use of flowers and harvest’s cornucopia." - Vivienne Beaumont
