I love textiles - handling them, decorating them, cutting them, rearranging them and stitching them to make something that pleases the eye as well as the hand. My work is ever-changing and continues to develop as I discover and explore new ideas and techniques.
I print or dye most of my own fabrics using both natural and synthetic dyes. I often use recycled cotton bed sheets but also enjoy experimenting with novel materials, paper and mixed media.
Inspiration may come from anywhere: a beautiful piece of fabric, a stunning view or something I’ve read or heard – the words triggering visual associations in my mind.
Most of my pieces are quilted wall hangings ranging in size from the smallest at 8 inches square to up to 60 inches tall. I have also over the years made king-size bed quilts, lots of baby quilts and everything in between.
