Bec Kirby is a Manchester-based textile artist working under the creative name of “soosumsee”. Working across a variety of mediums, her practices include tufting, embroidering, drawing, and painting. Working predominately in Interior Design for the last seven years, her understanding of how spaces, objects, and materials affect emotion led her to create a series of personal keepsakes for the home, which in turn became ‘The Series of Eight’ - her first homeware collection.
Bec’s body of work comprises of a series of cushions, wall-hangings, and soft-tapestry blankets. Drawing influence from reoccurring hallucinations she suffered with as a child, along with notions of death, loss, and grief. Each tufted piece is handcrafted in her studio, using responsibly sourced materials.
She says “I work with dead-stock yarn, disused by the textile industry, destined for land-fill. I re-purpose this yarn and weave it into homeware pieces that are going to be cherished for years to come.”
