Says Kerrie of her latest collection: “The age-old practice of being ‘swaddled’ with a piece fabric at birth is something most of us have experienced. This practice mimics the feeling of being inside the womb. The aim was not only to sooth and calm the newborn but once established this notion is recalled.

It’s not surprising that as we grow, we continue the practice of periodically draping ourselves with fabric.

This cloaking practice is explored throughout this body of work by alluding to the ways in which the fabric can be a powerful prop but also a source of creativity. This represents a symbol of stability amidst the confusing experiences that we must navigate through life: security and insecurity; connection and isolation; expressing emotions and repressing them.”
