Insight

Roanna graduated from Manchester School of Art in 2009 with a degree in Embroidery and has continued to use this medium as a drawing tool to explore various subject matter. 

By taking simple, abstract, repetitive processes, or by depicting more conceptual representations, her work has a constant sensitivity to hand-made, labour-intensive methods of production.

Roanna’s more  recent venture into woodcarving began in 2013 as an extension of this hand-made, process-led outlook, and from a love of collecting spoons that has developed over the past 10 years or so. From beginning with the basics of greenwood carving, she adapted these skills to produce hand carved simple, functional spoons.
