Sarah Greaves

Artisits Statment:
I am a mixed media artist who uses the traditional craft of embroidery to vandalise and graffiti everyday objects with emotive, political and thoughtful text. Fridges, doors, food and sinks become the canvases for hidden thoughts.
My Embroidered Graffiti is about exploring stereotyped identities and gender roles, our relationships with our bodies, our internal monologues and how the domestic and private become public. In my studio in Manchester these works are labouriously created and I try to break free from the addictive embroidery to paint, draw and make.
