I am a textile artist working from my home studio in the village of Waterstock, taking inspiration from the detail found in nature and science.
I generally base my work on wet felted wool, adding other fibres with hand or free machine embroidery to create layered textural surfaces. My work takes many forms; from contemporary art hangings and sculptures for exhibition, to functional handbags and accessories. My design work is abstract in nature, employing mark making and allowing motif creation to develop from drawing and printing research. I employ texture and colour to convey significant impressions and emotions in my work. Since returning to the UK after 14 years in Australia, I have been exhibiting my textile art with Untethered Fibre Artists in Australia, and Prism Textiles, seam collective and the Oxfordshire Craft Guild in UK.
