‘My work explores the unspoken and taboo topics connected to life as a woman. Whether it be inspired by miscarriage, breastfeeding, or the transformative female form, my art encourages all people to engage in an open and unashamed dialogue. By using traditional fiber techniques like hand knitting, my hope is to challenge and therefore change the cultural narrative of “women’s work.” Stitch by stitch, my goal is to push back against the stereotypes surrounding females, their bodies, their work, their capabilities, and their lives.’

"Before Subject Matter I would never have thought about being an
art-buyer. It felt like a world I didn't understand and didn't belong
in. You have opened my eyes!"

Cheryl | London

"I was amazed by the buying experience. I was contacted right after I confirmed the purchase and was taken care of all the way to the delivery, and even after. Never had such a friendly and professional service when buying a piece of art."
