Zeena Morris

Mixed-media and fibre art and the starting point for any piece made by Zeena Morris. Detailed research is undertaken to explore new technique. To date, collage, tufting and felting have been a great source of inspiration for developing new ideas and creations. Her latest discovery is how tufting and traditional stitching can bring a wider sense of texture and movement to unique designs. Bright colours and details from the surrounding landscape are a starting point for any projects. Sustainability, too, plays a key role, from the inception of an idea to its delivery. It is never an afterthought, and Morris is keen to use her textiles to bring about a wider awareness of the climate crisis and the overarching responsibility the fashion industry has to integrate more ethical practices into clothing production. Her final collection looks towards the oceans and the impact that bleaching is having on coral and sea life.
