My work is informed by my fascination with texture and colour. Finding inspiration in a variety of forms from organic shapes to ancient patterns I work to develop designs that explore flow and movement. The differing aspects of the sea and landscape are also an abiding source of inspiration.
My early training as a dressmaker and subsequent interest in patchwork and quilting has led me to choose to work in stitched textiles. I use both hand and machine techniques to create work that reflects my interest in texture and movement. I work mostly in silks and cottons and often dye and over dye my own fabrics to create the exact colours and effects that I require.
