Mixed media/ textile/ sculpture

I grew up making things. My father was a builder and my mother made our clothes, furnishings and taught me to knit and sew. My grandmother and great grandmother were great knitters and crocheters. Making is a comfortable thing for me, so I have over the years naturally evolved this thinking and doing from my painting process into my sculpture, textiles and mixed media works.

I have written about my dress art featured on this page in the publication: Hannigan, S. 2019. From the Parlour to the Forum. In Eds. (S.Pinto, S.Hannigan, B. Walker-Gibbs, E. Charlton.
