"Amend – to revise, to repair, to correct.

"The wreaths of flowers are constructions of botanical patterns taken from found vintage textiles. The highly coloured, baroquely exuberant imagery , designed for domestic embellishment , has been shifted into shades of black and white. There are also shifts in placement, scale, material or surface.
